  1. V=lwh
    V=k*k-1*k-2
    V=k^3-3k^2-2k

  4. consecutive integers are integers like 1,2,3 or 3,4,5 or 101,102,103. So since the largest of the integers is k, to get the consecutive integers lower than k, you have to find the second integer which would be k-1, then the third which would be k-2.
