PLEASE HELP ME!!
The volume for a rectangular prism is given by the formula V = l · w · h, where l is the length of the prism, w is the width of the prism, and h is the height of the prism.If the volume of a rectangular prism with a height of 9 inches is 144 cubic inches and the base of the prism is a square, then what is the width of the rectangular prism?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if V =l*w*h then so since they have said that base of the prism is a square that means all the sides if the base are equal . So length = width !! since l = w We can write the equation as V =2wh right> Cuze l=w so lw=2w=2l \[w = \frac{ v }{ 2h }\]
