00:00:03.010 --> 00:00:07.090
Each of these rectangular prisms is made up of unit cubes.
00:00:07.580 --> 00:00:10.880
Which has a volume of 30 cubic units?
00:00:12.570 --> 00:00:19.720
To find the volume of a rectangular prism, we multiply the length times the width times the height.
00:00:21.550 --> 00:00:27.410
We have to find which rectangular prism has a volume of 30 cubic units.
00:00:28.660 --> 00:00:30.340
Let’s start with figure A.
00:00:31.460 --> 00:00:36.380
We need to find the length, the width, and the height.
00:00:37.270 --> 00:00:39.440
The length is five units.
00:00:40.120 --> 00:00:42.240
The width is two units.
00:00:43.330 --> 00:00:45.360
And the height is three units.
00:00:46.520 --> 00:00:52.290
Now let’s work out the volume using the formula, length times width times height.
00:00:53.240 --> 00:01:02.380
The length is five units multiplied by the width, which is two units, multiplied by the height, which is three units.
00:01:03.490 --> 00:01:05.220
Five times two is 10.
00:01:05.700 --> 00:01:08.390
And ten multiplied by three is 30.
00:01:09.730 --> 00:01:15.430
So the volume of rectangular prism A is 30 cubic units.
00:01:17.000 --> 00:01:21.810
So the answer is figure A has a volume of 30 cubic units.
