Cubic feet of space? If we restrict our discussion to objects that have rectangular cross-sections, then the volume (V) of the figures will be their length (L) times their width (W) times their height (H). V=LWH. If the object is a cube, then L = W = H = L3 and L = the cube root of the volume. In your case the cube root of 5 is about 1.7 ft. ----------------------------------------------------------- This is not nessasaraly to perfect answer to the questio but it is a start

### Why do you square a number in a mathematical formula?

A formula is something which shows a relationship between two or
more things. A formula will contain variables and may also contain
constants too and it tells us the relationship between them. The
answer to the question is that you square a number if, and only if,
the relationship between the variables (or constants) requires the
number to be squared.
For example in the famous formula e = mc2 , here we must square
the constant, the speed of light in a vacuum (c), in order to
calculate energy (e). It has to be squared because that constitutes
the relationship between the values and there is no option to
ignore that.
