  1. I would solve this problem like this:
    V=180
    l=10
    w=4
    h=?
    plug l, w, and v into the equation, v=lwh: 180=10•4•h
    Solve:
    180=40•h
    180/40=40h/40
    4.5=h

    So, h=4.5
    You can check by plugging in 4.5 for h in the original equation:
    10•4•4.5=180

    hope that helps :)
