The base of the skateboard ramp has an area of 2.3 m square meters the height of the ramp is 1.2 m find the volume of the rectangular prism? Can you help me Dr.Jane or Ms.Sue?!?
I will try.
The volume of a rectangular prism is length x width x height
If the base is l x w = 2.3 sq. meters
multiply that times the height of 1.2
so you should have 2.3 x 1.2 = ? cubic meters.
You just type in 2.3 x 1.2= ... and it equals to... 2.76.
Hope this helped you
Dr.Jane and Ashley,But don't I need to divide it by 1/2 since its a triangular prism?
Oh wait never mind I see why you don't need to do 1/2. Your trying to find the volume and thank you for your help you two are life savers!
