Please HELP. (You don't have to answer it for me.) Three faces of a right rectangular prism have areas of 48, 49, and 50 square units. What is the volume of the prism in cubic units? Express your answer to the nearest whole number.

    With faces 48, 49 and 50 you can deduce the length of each side to be: xy = 48 xz = 49 yz = 50 Now just isolate and solve... 3 eqns and 2 unknown is a breeze. Once you solve for x,y and z, just do x*y*z and get volume
