Imagine you have a garden where you want to measure how much space you can use for planting. We often talk about space in **cubic meters** or **cubic feet**. Let’s break this down!

A **cubic meter** is a box that is **1 meter long, 1 meter wide, and 1 meter tall**. To understand how that space translates into cubic feet, we can do a simple conversion.

To convert **cubic meters** to **cubic feet**, we can use this relationship:

1 cubic meter is equal to approximately 35.3147 cubic feet. So, if you have **25 cubic meters**, you can find out how many cubic feet that is by multiplying:

$$

25 \, \text{cubic meters} \times 35.3147 \, \text{cubic feet/cubic meter} \approx 883.68 \, \text{cubic feet}

$$

So, 25 cubic meters is about **883.68 cubic feet** of space!

In your gardening practice, this space can be very useful for planting a variety of things. Just imagine how many plants can fit in that area!

Here are 7 objects that take up **exactly 25 cubic meters** of space:

- A large fish tank that is 1 meter long, 1.5 meters wide, and 16.67 meters tall.
- A wooden storage shed with dimensions of 2 meters long, 2.5 meters wide, and 5 meters tall.
- A water tank that is 2 meters in diameter and about 4 meters high.
- A stack of neatly arranged firewood that measures 2 meters long, 2.5 meters wide, and 5 meters tall.
- A large raised garden bed that is 2 meters long, 5 meters wide, and 1 meter tall.
- Three Olympic-sized swimming pools filled up to the 5 cm level.
- A compact car that takes up a space of about 25 cubic meters when stacked with its parts at a junkyard.

Now you can see how big **25 cubic meters** really is!
