    Do you know how to find the volume of a prism?

    \(\large V_{prism} = Bh\) where B = area of the base h = height of the prism

    The volume of the prism is the area of the base of the prism, a triangle, multiplied by the height of the prism.

    I don't know. I only know the answer after I work it out.

    We can find the area of the base of the prism. We also know the volume of the prism, so we can find the height of the prism. \(V = Bh\) \(3240~cm^3 = \dfrac{24~cm \times 15~cm}{2} \times h \) Solve for h.
