Volume of a prism
To be able to know how to solve the volume of a prism.
Volume of a prism = Area of cross-section x hieght.
1. First you find the area of the cross-section, which
is A= 1/2 base x hieght
A= 1/2 8 x 10
A= 40 cm^2
2. Then you times the area by the length and you get the volume
V= Area of cross-section x hieght
V = 40 x 60
V= 2400 cm^3
