## Formula

Object: To find the pounds per cubic feet for a particular carton to determine the actual class:

Square Foot = 1728 inches

Measure the carton and multiply the H x W x L

**Example: **40" x 24" x 40" = 38,400 inches

8 pounds per carton

Divide 38,400 by 1728 = 22.22

8 (weight of carton) divided into 22.22 = 2.78

PCF 2.78 = Class 250
