The formula for the volume, V, of a prism is V = Bh, where B equals the base area, and h is the height of the prism. What is the height of a prism with base area 21 cm2 and volume 84 cm3?

• algebra 1 -

well, if v = Bh, then

84 = 21h
That help?

• algebra 1 -

so is the answer 4 because 21*4 = 84

• algebra 1 -
