do u know the formula for the volume of a cube?

3. LynFran

$v=a ^{3}$

4. LynFran

where a" is the side..

5. LynFran

so we want the volume of 2 cubes so $v=2(\frac{ 1 }{ 2 })^{3}$

sorry i was doing something

7. LynFran

$v=2(\frac{ 1 }{ 8 })$

8. LynFran

v=?

9. anonymous

v = 1/2 3

10. LynFran

whats does $v=\frac{ 2 }{ 8 }$reduce/simplify to?
