Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are those dimensions, or multiple choice answers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\Large V_{prism} = Bh\) where B = the area of the base, and h = height of the prism

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have a triangular prism. The base is a triangle. To find the volume of the prism, you need to find the area of the triangular base and multiply it by the height of the prism.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so From what i can see of it, it is 28 but I'm most likely wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's not 28. We'll do it together. Look at the triangular base. What is the area of the triangle below? dw:1438106362527:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\Large A_{triangle} = \dfrac{bh}{2} \) How did you get 13? What operations did you do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The area of a triangle is the base times the height divided by 2. In your triangle, the base is 4 ft, and the height is 6 ft. What is 4 * 6 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Operations are addition, subtraction, multiplication, division. Somehow you arrived at 13. I was just wondering how you got that number. Yes, 24 is correct. That is the base times the height. Now we divide that by 2. What is 24/2 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I added lol, i got 12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok. 12 ft^2 is correct. The area of the base is 12 square feet.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now we have the area of the base, 12 ft^2. Now we use that number in the formula for the volume. The volume of a prism is the area of the base times the height of the prism. The area of the base is 12 ft=^2. The height of the prism is 8 ft. What is 12 ft^2 * 8 ft ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How did you get that? All you need to do is multiply 12 * 8 Then ft^2 * ft = ft^3, which are proper cubic units for a volume. Just multiply 12 * 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh i thought 12 was squared

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im REALLY bad at this

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No. The units ft^2 are squared because 12 ft^2 is an area. Remember, we found the area of the base to be 12 ft^2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what do I do now with 96?

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct. Since it's a volume, and we are dealing with ft, the answer is V = 96 ft^3

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can also write 96 ft^3 as 96 cu ft. It just means 96 cubic feet.
