The dimensions of a rectangular box are 4 4 2 x 2 3 x 3 To find the VOLUME of the box, you must find how many 1 x 1 x 1 cubes will fill the box

4 3 2 The VOLUME of the box = 4 x 2 x 3 = 24 cubic units

4 3 2 The VOLUME of the box = 4 x 2 x 3 = 24 cubic units = length x width x height

4 3 2 The VOLUME of the box = 4 x 2 x 3 = 24 cubic units = length x width x height = area of base x height

The radius of the base of a cylindrical can is 4 units 4

The radius of the base of a cylindrical can is 4 units 4 The height is 10 units 10

The radius of the base of a cylindrical can is 4 units The height is 10 units 4 10 The area of the base =  r 2 = 16 

The radius of the base of a cylindrical can is 4 units The height is 10 units 4 10 The area of the base =  r 2 = 16  The VOLUME =  r 2 h = (area of base)x( height) The VOLUME = 160  cubic units  502.4 cubic units

<a href = http://mathcentral.uregina.ca/QQ/database/QQ.09.99/partridge1.html > The volume of a sphere is 4/3  r 3 to see a derivation of this formula that does not use calculus visit the website above

The volume of a cone or a pyramid = 1/3 ( area of base ) ( height )
