Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ops, typo, not a square base, rectangular base: instead of (lenght)^2 should be (length)*(width)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0½ * a * b * h = Ah (area of the triangle)*(lenght of the prim / height of the prim)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find the volume of the triangular prism, you need the area of the triangle. In order to find the area of the triangle we need the height. We can find it by: \ x  \ 24  \ ___\ (22/2) = 11 so 24^2 = x^2 + 11^2 x=21.3307

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now that we found the height of the triangle we can find the volume of the triangular prims and add to the volume of the rect. prism. to get the total volume

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay I just forgot that we had the base. So i did 21.3307*22 all over 2 and I got 234.6377. then I did (234.6377)*(40)*(18)=169,939....is that wrong?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright so, Volume of Trian. prism = (.5)(22)(21.3307)(40) = 9385.51 Volume of Rect. prism = 22*18*40 = 15840 Total Volume = 9385.51 + 15840 = 25225.5
