I think that your prism is like below: |dw:1439805080062:dw|

namely, your prism is truncated by means of a plane which is not parallel to the plane which contains the base of your prism

It is not simple, in order to get your answer we can use the integral calculus in three dimensions
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
otherwise, you can draw your prism, using AutoCAD, and then there there is a command which allows to get the volume of such prism

is that the on where there's x and y and z and with the graphs and all, or no? haha
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
yes! we have to consider the equations of some planes
