  1. Calculate the volume of the container:
    Vc = 10*15*20 = 3000 in³

    Calculate the volume of the cylindrical cup:
    Vp= πr²h = π*2²*5 = 62.832 in³

    Maximum number of cups without overflow
    = 3000/62.832
    = 47.75 cups
    Therefore, up to 47 cups, the container will not overflow.
