## Finding the Volume of a Solid: Regular Shaped Prism

Rectangular Prism: L x W x H to get the volume right.
1. Line the item right on the 0 cm line.
2. Find the two numbers it is in between (ex: 8 and 9)
3. Count how many lines past your object is (ex: 3 lines)
4. Determine your measurement (ex: 8.3 cm)
5. repeat for other two sides
6. Multiply L x W x H = Volume (cubic units)
