## Answers

4ft equals 4×12 = 48 inches
8ft equals 8x12 = 96 inches
So, to find the weight you multiply the three #s (in inches) together first
48 x 96 x .050 = 230.4

My answer got posted before I could complete it
4ft equals 4x12 = 48 inches
8ft equals 8x12 = 96 inches
So, to calculate the weight you multiply the 3 numbers (in inches) together
=> 48 x 96 x .050 = 230.4 cubic inches
No, to convert it into pounds as Weight of steel is generally measured in pounds
1 cubic inch of steel weighs 0.2836 pounds
So, the Weight of steel here would be:
=> 230.4 x 0.2836 = 65.34 pounds
In other words the answer is 65.34 lbs
