**Rectangular Prism**

Volume Formula

This page examines the properties of a rectangular prism such as the image above. A rectangular prism is exactly what it sounds like . It's a 3 dimensional shape with a width, height and a length (or base) such as the 3,2, and 8 this picture .

Volume Formula

Use the formula for the volume of a cylinder as shown below.

$ V = 2 \cdot 5 \cdot 3 \\ V = 30 $

Yes, it is possible because:

$$ 5^3 = 125 \\ volume = length \cdot width \cdot height \\ 125 = 5 \cdot 5 \cdot 5 $$

$$ \\ volume = length \cdot width \cdot height \\ V = 2 \cdot 3 \cdot 6 = \color{red}{36 \text{ in}^3 } $$

$$ volume = length \cdot width \cdot height \\ V = 1 \cdot 3 \cdot 7 = 21\text{ in}^3 $$
