trying to verify the volume of a rectanguler prism
h=10 inches
w=2
and the formula to find the volume is l.w.h
not a math genius just trying to make sure i am calculating this correctly

to find the lengh we had to divide the width of the prism so 2 inches divided by 4 =0.5 which pretty much is 1/2
1x1x10=10
2x2x1=4 =2.5
10 divided 2.5=4

  2. I gave the dimenions of the height and the width I need to find the length in order to calculate the volume . I even did the problem all I asked was that you verified if I did it right in order to find the length.

    Your response I did not state the relationship between the width and the length. The relationship is it is a rectangular prism

  3. Why do you divide the width by 4? Is That because the length is 1/4W?
