how much material was used in the manufacture of 24000 celluloid dice,if each dice has an edge 1/4 inches?

The volume of each celluloid die is (.25 x .25 x .25) = 0.015625 cubic inch. To manufacture 24,000 of them, you need to start with at least (24,000) x (0.015625) = 375 cubic inches. I don't know how celluloid is sold, so you should also keep in mind that 375 cubic inches = about 207.8 fluid ounces, or about 6.5 quarts. I'm sure a bit more than that was used in the manufacture, since there's always some wasted, spilled, or trimmed off of the edges.
