**Finding the Volume of a Rectangular Prism**

A Rectangular Prism looks like a box and has a

3-dimensional (3D) shape.

The formulas for volume of a Rectangular Prism is

v = l * w * h or v = b * h

v is the volume

l is the length of the base.

w is the width of its base.

h is the height

b is the area of its base

Example: find the volume of the Rectangular Prism

Formulas is v = L * w * h

l = 6 cm

w = 4 cm

h = 5 cm

v = 6 * 4 * 5 = 120 cm

You can find the volume of a prism by counting

unite cubes.

Example: the volume of this prism is 20 cubic centimeter (cm).

There are two layer with 10 cubes in each layer. The

volume is 20 cubic centimeter or 20 cm
