Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well the base area is \[A= x^2 \] multiply length by width and \[V = 4x^8+ 3x^6\] take a factor of x^2 out ot the volume \[V =x^2(4x^6 + 3x^4)\] now compare it to the volume of a prism V = base area x height you know the base area is x^2 so you should be able to identify the height of the prism

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1V = base area x height you know the base area is x^2 \[V = x^2 \times (4x^6 + 3x^4)\] the height is the other factor... shown above
