Stacks of Books

  • For which stack(s) of books could you determine the number of books in the stack by measuring the height of the stack?
  • For the stack(s) of books you identified, what other information do you need to know to determine the number of books in the stack?

Hint:

  • What would have to be true about the books in the stack for you to be able to tell how many books are in the stack?
  • Think about what you would divide the height of the books by to find the number of books in the stack.
