Finding Volumes of Prisms
EXAMPLE 1 Find the volume of the prism. a. Base is a rectangle with area lw. V = Bh = lwh = 12(8)(2) = 192 ANSWER The volume is192 cubic inches.

Finding Volumes of Prisms
EXAMPLE 1 b. 1 Base is a triangle with area bh. 2 V = Bh (4)(3)(10) 1 2 = = 60 ANSWER The volume is 60 cubic meters.

Finding the Volume of a Cylinder EXAMPLE 2
Find the volume of the cylinder. SOLUTION The radius is one half the diameter, so r = 3 cm. V = Bh Write formula for volume. = πr2h Write formula for volume of a cylinder. = π(3)2(9) Substitute 3 for r and 9 for h. = 81π Simplify. Evaluate using a calculator.
