How can we calculate the mean corpuscular Volume (MCV)?

How can we calculate the mean corpuscular Volume (MCV)?
for person who has Hb-8.4g/dl
Haematocrit (Packed Cell Volum ) -26%
Red Blood Cell (RBC or Erythrocyte count ) -3.1x106 ( 10 to the power of 6 )

do we need to convert 26 which is in percente , or do we need to convert mm to leters.

thank you very much in advance.

I need the answer today.

The mean corpuscular volume,

The mean corpuscular volume, or MCV, is a measure of the average red blood cell volume (i.e. size) that is reported as part of a standard complete blood count.

It can be calculated (in litres) by dividing the hematocrit by the red blood cell count (number of red blood cells per litre). The result is typically reported in femtolitres.
