pls try and draft ur question with ms word and attach it

5. eyust707

like that?

6. 28Tylerr

Yeah like that Eyus. Thank you

7. donbillions

yep this is better \

8. eyust707

ok so the formula for the volume of a rectangular solid is: Length x Width x Height

9. eyust707

so all we gotta do is just put each number into that formula

10. 28Tylerr

Eyust the 6 was inside the figure.

11. eyust707

ahh thats ok the six simply refers to the length of the side

12. eyust707

it just a label and can be put inside or outside

13. eyust707

so lets do it

14. eyust707

( 5 ft.) x (4 ft.) x (6 ft.) =???

15. 28Tylerr

120ft.

16. donbillions

wow eyust, thats cooool

17. eyust707

yep but since it's a volume and tits ft x ft x ft

18. eyust707

it ends up being \[120 ft^3\]

19. 28Tylerr

Alright that makes alot of sense now. I have one more but can you check it before I write it down?

20. eyust707

sure

21. 28Tylerr

Alright here I will post it in a new problem with a new drawing.

22. eyust707

oh one more thing also the question said "round to the nearest tenth" some teachers will get picky and require you to write \[120.0 ft^3\] dont thinkit really matters yet at your level tho because the two answers are equivalent

23. 28Tylerr

Alright man I wrote that down just in case they would ask about it,

24. eyust707

sweet
