No. Your rectangular prism has three different dimensions.

Jenna,

Remember the cake pans?

9 * 9 * 3 = 243

------------------------------

in a 9 in. sq. cake pan and 1 10 in. sq. cake pan, what is the difference in volume each pan will hold? assume each pan is 3 in. high. show step by step work and correct units with solution.

9 * 9 * 3 = 243

10 * 10 * 3 = 300

300 -243 = 57 in^3
