Riz and Annie just had a cord of wood delivered to their house. A cord, when stacked, takes up 128 cubic feet. The usable space of the woodshed is 7′ wide by 7′ high by 13′ long.

About how many cords of wood will their woodshed hold?

Extra: In the picture below they’ve stacked about 2/3 of a row. Each piece of wood is 16 inches long, meaning each row is 16 inches deep. When they finish stacking the cord, how many rows of wood should they have?
