    The apothem of a regular polygon is the distance from the centre of the polygon to one its sides.

    I will assume that by "square candle" you mean its base is a square.
    If its apothem is 5 then its side is 10.
    So the fact that the side is given as 10 confirms that and is actually redundant information.

    Volume = 10cm x 10cm x 9cm = 900 cm^3
