Q:
# a container in the shape of a rectangular prism holds 651.168 cubic inches when completely filled with water. the container has a length of 12.6 inches and a width of 15.2 inches. what is the height in inches

Accepted Solution

A:

To find the height of the prism, you will use the formula for finding the area of a rectangular prism and solve for the height.

V = lwh

651.168 = 12.6 x 15.2 x h

651.167 = 191.52 x h; divide both sides by 191.52

h = 3.4 inches

The height is 3.4 inches.

V = lwh

651.168 = 12.6 x 15.2 x h

651.167 = 191.52 x h; divide both sides by 191.52

h = 3.4 inches

The height is 3.4 inches.
