A real world problem for simple solids like cubes or rectangular prism is if you are boxing something like a radio. You multiply the base and the height.

A real world problem that involve the volume of cones, spheres, and cylinders is if you are packaging a bottle, ball, or filling a ice cream cone. You use the formulas from the 3rd item of business to solve these.
