    yes, volume is length*width*height we can say length*width is the area of the base, and write B*height (personally I don't like to use single letters for area... too easy to confuse it with a length)

    Ok. How do you know when B is area of the base and when it means length of the base?

    I just learned Volume is area of the base times height (say it 100 times, and I am sure you will remember it for a long time)
