# solve volume of prisms

### Rectangle is the base

## V=Bh What the heck is B? Area of the base- How do you find area of the base? First- ask yourself what is the shape of the base? Its a RECTANGLE How do you find area of a rectangle? A=length times width! | ## SO how do you find area of the base with numbers V=Bh V= (lw)h V= (2)(3)(6) V= 36 cubic feet | ## what happens if the base is the triangle??? Same formula applies V=Bh except the B= area of a triangle V=Bh V= bh/2 V=(3)(8)/2)(12) V=12(12) V=144 cubic cm |

## V=Bh

What the heck is B?

Area of the base- How do you find area of the base?

First- ask yourself what is the shape of the base?

Its a RECTANGLE

How do you find area of a rectangle?

A=length times width!

The Volume Song [Happy Parody]

Volume of a Triangular Prism

## What about a cylinder

Same applies with the formula- V=Bh

B= area of the base

whats the base shape???? CIRCLE
