    thank for you help everyone

    1 foot is 0.3048 metres (always use 'International System of Units' measumrement units for such calculations).

    So 4ft x 1ft x 2ft is (4 x 0.3048m) x (1 x 0.3048m) x (2 x 0.3048m) = 0.226534773 m3 (cubic meters)

    A cubic meter has the nice property to be equivalent to 1000 liters.

    So 4ft x 1ft x 2ft is 226.534773 liters!

    bout tree fiddy


    There once was a man who lived in a small village and he enjoyed a little fishing. Enough in fact to support his family, which only took about 3 or 4 days per/week. When his work was done then he would enjoy the afternoon with his family. A meal together, a siesta, and then play his guitar, sing songs, share laughter with his family, and he knew he would spend the remainder of the evening in the company of his loving wife.

    It so happened that one day as he returned from his fishing venture and took his catch to the market place a business man took notice of his skilled fashion in which he successfully sold all his catch. The business man decided to address such talent with an offer of advise. Graciously the fisherman listened as the business man began complimenting and advising him.

    "You should start by getting a bigger boat which can hold more fish, then you can work six days a week or so and double if not triple your income" The amused fisherman asked "Then what"

    "Then you could buy another boat, and another, and another until you had a fleet of boats and you could work around the clock" The fisherman said "Then what"

    Then you could by a great building in the city, move your family there and continue to grow and expand so you never have to fish yourself, but rather work all day in your office and over see your massive corporation" "Then what"

    Then you can retire and move to a quite peaceful little village somewhere and do a little fishing, enjoy fine meals, laugh and sing and spend quality time with your family. Then the business man recognized where the man was, smiled and went away.
