volume = uniform cross section area x height = [(1/2) x 18 x24] x 12 = 216 x 12 = can you work out the answer yourself?

I think so. But I used the formula v = 1/3 base times height, and it gave me a completely different answer from yours...

1/3 is used for 'pyramid'

Is it not a pyramid?

well, your question show a prism with uniform cross section area. So the formula used is base area times height, where the base area should be the cross section area

|dw:1333204296527:dw| (a) is a prism and (b) is a pyramid
Callisto

For a , you can find uniform cross section area, but you cannot find that in (b) |dw:1333204450221:dw|

Yes, I understand now ^^ We have not learned about uniform cross sections in class (or maybe it is called a different name or I didn't pay attention ^^") but thank you so much!
