In order to find the length of the rectangular prism on the right, we had to take the length of the original figure (which was ) and subtract the length of the rectangular prism on the left (which is )

Now that we have the dimensions of both our rectangular prisms, we can solve for the volumes. 

Remember, the formula for volume is 

   and 

         and 

Next, we add the volumes together to solve for the total volume of the original figure.

*Remember, volume is always measured in cubic units!
