Find the volume of a rectangular prism with a base of 6 by 7 units and a height of 9 units?

Step 1. Base Area = Length * width = 6*7*= 42

( use length*width because it is a rectangular prism)

Step 2. Next take Base Area * Height = 42*9 = 378 units cubed (volume is always cubed)

Now a prism can be have different shaped bases. The key to finding the volume is to find the base area formula for that shape and then multiply this by the height.
