Assistance needed.

Please type your __subject__ in the **School Subject** box. Any other words, including obscure abbreviations, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.

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
