How many cubes with 1/2 inch side lengths will fit inside a prism with a volume of 56 cubic inches?
I'm thinking 112, since 56 * 2 =112, but I'm not sure if that's the right thinking.

2. You don't say what kind of a prism.
I will assume it is a rectangular prism, (fancy word for box)

each cube has a volume of (1/2)^3 or 1/8 inches^3

number that will fit the box = 56/(1/8)
= 448 cubes

e.g. the box could have been
4 in by 7 in by 2 in
for a volume of 56 inches^3

since each cube is 1/2 inch, we could lay 8 along the width, 14 along the length, and stack them 4 high
8x14x4 = 448
