ANSWERS: (1) V = L x W x H

V = 15 feet x 12 feet x 9 feet

V = 1,620 cubic feet

(2) V = L x W x H

V = 4 1/2 feet x 4 feet x 3 1/2 feet

V = 9 x4 x 7

21

2

V = 252

4

V = 63 cubic feet

VOLUME OF A CUBE

A cube is a special form of rectangular solid; its length, width, and height are

all equal. All of its six sides are squares and all of its edges are equal in

length.

You can use the formula V = L x W x H to find the

volume of a cube. However, since the length, width,

and height will always be equal in length, the

formula can be written:

V = S3 or the formula is read:

"Volume = 1 side cube"

and S3 means S x S x S

What is the value of 23? ________________
