On the Planet of Flowers live huge bees. In the same way as our earthly bees they deposit honey (its extraterrestrial equivalent) into the honeycombs of the shape of regular hexagonal prism. Unfortunately our expedition during a long journey back lost notes about the measurements of these honeycombs. One member of our expedition luckily (due to the fact that he weighs 80 kg and has 11-year old son) remembers that the honeycomb was 11 cm deep and that the product of greatest distance between the corners of the base (B) and the distance of opposite walls (A) was equal to 80 (distances were measured in centimeters). Could you please calculate how many liters of honey fits into one honeycomb to cover up scandalous data loss of our expedition?
