A cuboid reservoir 32m×24m×4m is to be separated into 4 equal chambers by constructing cross walls 40cm thick upto its height. Find volume.?

3 cross walls, each of dimension 24m x 4m x 0.4m will separate reservoir with dimensions 32m x 24m x 4m into 4 equal chambers. The sum of the volumes of
the chambers = Rv - Cv where Rv = reservoir volume and Cv = total volume of
the 3 cross walls. Rv = 32*24*4 [m]^3 = 3072 [m]^3. Cv = 3*24*4*(0.4) [m]^3 =
115.2 [m]^3.Required volume = (3072 - 115,2) [m]^3 = 2956.8 [m]^3.

Calculate the volume of the reservoir. Subtract the volume of the cross walls. Do not double count the volume where the cross walls intersect (it's small but it will affect your answer).
