## anonymous one year ago The volume of a rectangular prism is 288 ft3. If its height is 6 feet and its length is 8 feet, what is its width? A. 6 feet B. 8 feet C. 9 feet D. 12 feet

Any ideas?

2. anonymous

Not really... I'm fine with finding height but finding width is my weak spot.

3. skullpatrol

Recall the formula for the volume of a rectangular prism is V = l*w*h

I am pretty sure it is 6...

5. anonymous

But try entering the possible answers into the equation.

6. anonymous

$288=6*8*width$ $288=48*width$ $\frac{ 288 }{ 48 } = width$

7. anonymous

Ok... Thanks. I'll try working off of the information everyone gave me.

8. anonymous

I believe the answer is 6...

9. skullpatrol

Correct :-)

Don't forget your units.

Not just 6. 6*(1 foot) = 6 feet. Unit^
