Arectangular prism has a length of 2 1/4 feet, a width of 6 feet, and a height of 3 1/2 feet. what is the volume of the prism? enter your answer in the box. ft³

For this case we have by definition, that the area of a rectangular prism is given by:

Where:

is the area of the base

h: It's the height

Before findingwe convert the mixed numbers to fractions:

length:

width: 6

Height:

So, we have to:

Finally, the volume is given by:

EXPLANATION

The formula for calculating the volume of a rectangular prism is

Where

is the length of the rectangular box,

is the width and

is the height of the rectangular prism.

We plug in the given dimensions into the formula to get:

Convert the mixed numbers to improper fraction to get:

Multiply out to get

Or

Question 1: To find volume the formula is Length× Width × height
So it would be 2 1/2× 6 × 3 1/2= 5 1/2
So the volume is 5 1/2

Question 2: You have to multiply 6 × 4 = 24
The volume of a rectangular prism is the product of length, width, and height.
V = LWH
V = (2.25 ft)(6 ft)(3.50 ft)
V = 47.25 ft³ = 47 1/4 ft³
