1. A publishing project will require a calculation of the book's spine width. The formula reads thusly: "Total page count divided by paper thickness." A more precise mathematical spine width formula is: "page count/2 x paper gram weight x paper volume /1000 - rounded up to nearest whole number."

So a 100-page book using paper which is 80 gsm with a volume of 1.8 would require a spine width of 8 mm. I am trying to figure out how this answer was achieved.
