    looks like this is made up of 3 objects: 2 cubes and a triangular prism

    you have all the dimensions, so you just need to find the volume of each object and sum them

    but how?

    volume is \[length * width * height\]

    for instance, with the first rectangular prism on the left, 8in by 7in by 7in

    volume is the product of those 3 values, and the same for the other rectangular prism, now with the triangular prism just remember that \[A=\frac{1}{2}*base*height\]

    so you then multiply A by the 3rd dimension

    so, length∗width∗height A=1\2∗base∗height

    and because you are multiplying values with "inches" as the units, the volume is in inches cubed, \[in^3\]

    looking at the picture, it looks as though the length of the left side the triangle is equal to 8 and the length of the other side is equal to 7....

    7*7*8 = 392 7*7*8 = 392 8*7/2=28 so 392+392+28=812in3
