Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

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)
