I'm trying to figure out how much fluid in gallons does a container hold if the dimensions are 4 ft. in height x 15 ft. length x 6 ft. in width. Could someone please help me?

Ok, the volume is 4' x 15' x 6' = 360 cu. ft.

Now you need to know that there are 1728 cubic inches per cubic foot and 231 cubic inches per gallon

360 x 1728/231 = 2693 gallons (I'm assuming you want US gallons, not Imperial)
