Anne has two containers for water: a rectangular plastic box with a base of 16 square inches, and a cylindrical container with a radius of 2 inches and a height of 9 inches. If the rectangular box is filled with water 9 inches from the bottom, and Anne pours the water into the cylinder without spilling, which of the following will be true?

- The cylinder will overflow.
- The cylinder will be exactly full.
- The cylinder will be filled to an approximate level of 10 inches.
- The cylinder will be filled to an approximate level of 8 inches
- The cylinder will be filled to an approximate level of 6 inches.

**Answer(s):** A

**Explanation:**

The amount of water held in each container must be found. The rectangular box starts with 16 square inches times 9 inches = 144 cubic inches of water. The cylindrical container can hold 3.14(4)(9) cubic inches of water, which is approximately 113 cubic inches. Therefore, the container will overflow.
