ANSWER: cubic foot
VOLUME OF RECTANGULAR SOLID
(1) The number of cubic units a solid will hold is called the
A solid like the one shown here is called a rectangular solid. A rectangular
solid always has six sides and each side is a rectangle.
Your footlocker and wall locker are good examples of a rectangular solid.

To find out how much a box will hold, you must multiply length x width x height.
The formula, then, for finding the volume of a rectangular solid is
Volume = Length x Width x Height
V = L x W x H
(2) If a footlocker is 3 feet long, 2 feet wide, and 1 foot high, what is its
