A box is 3 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 6 feet high. The volume of the box is ___________.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

 

 

 

Example Question #28 : How To Find The Volume Of A Prism

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

Screen shot 2015 07 29 at 10.55.06 am

Possible Answers:

Yes because we are given all of the side lengths 

Yes because this is a closed shape

 

No because this shape only has three sides

 

No because this shape is flat

 

Correct answer:

No because this shape is flat

 

Explanation:

Volume is only a characteristic of three-dimensional shapes. We can think of volume as space within an object or shape.  Because this is a flat shape, it does not have a volume.

Example Question #51 : Measurement & Data

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

Screen shot 2015 07 29 at 11.00.27 am

Possible Answers:

Yes because we know the area

Yes because we are given the volume formula

 

No because this shape has too many sides

 

No because this shape is flat

 

Correct answer:

No because this shape is flat

 

Explanation:

Volume is only a characteristic of three-dimensional shapes. We can think of volume as space within an object or shape.  Because this is a flat shape, it does not have a volume.

Example Question #52 : Measurement & Data

Can we determine the volume of this shape? 

Screen shot 2015 07 29 at 11.05.40 am

Possible Answers:

Yes because this is a closed shape 

No because this shape is flat

 

Yes because the volume of a rectangle is always in cubic units

 

No because the sides are not the same

 

Correct answer:

No because this shape is flat

 

Explanation:

Volume is only a characteristic of three-dimensional shapes. We can think of volume as space within an object or shape.  Because this is a flat shape, it does not have a volume.

 

Example Question #53 : Measurement & Data

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

 Screen shot 2015 07 29 at 11.10.47 am

Possible Answers:

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

 

No because we were not given the area

Yes because we are given the width

 

No because this shape is flat

 

Correct answer:

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

 

Explanation:

Volume is a characteristic of three-dimensional shapes. This is a cylinder, which is a three-dimensional shape. We can think of volume as space within an object or shape, so the volume would be the amount of space inside this cylinder. 

Example Question #54 : Measurement & Data

Can we determine the volume of this shape? 



Screen shot 2015 07 29 at 11.08.41 am

Possible Answers:

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

 

No because we were not given the area

Yes because we are given the length

 

No because this shape is flat

 

Correct answer:

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

 

Explanation:

Volume is a characteristic of three-dimensional shapes. This is a rectangular prism, which is a three-dimensional shape. We can think of volume as space within an object or shape, so the volume would be the amount of space inside this rectangular prism. 

Example Question #55 : Measurement & Data

Can we determine the volume of this shape? 

Screen shot 2015 07 29 at 11.16.08 am

Possible Answers:

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

 

No because we were not given the area

Yes because we are given the length

 

No because this shape is flat

 

Correct answer:

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

 

Explanation:

Volume is a characteristic of three-dimensional shapes. This is a rectangular prism, which is a three-dimensional shape. We can think of volume as space within an object or shape, so the volume would be the amount of space inside this rectangular prism. 

Example Question #56 : Measurement & Data

Can we determine the volume of this shape? 

Screen shot 2015 07 29 at 11.17.23 am

Possible Answers:

No because we were not given the area

No because this shape is flat

 

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

 

Yes because we are given the width

 

Correct answer:

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

 

Explanation:

Volume is a characteristic of three-dimensional shapes. This is a cube, which is a three-dimensional shape. We can think of volume as space within an object or shape, so the volume would be the amount of space inside this cube. 

Example Question #57 : Measurement & Data

Can we determine the volume of this shape? 

Screen shot 2015 07 29 at 10.53.52 am

Possible Answers:

No because this shape is flat

 

No because this shape is round

Yes because we are given the radius

Yes because we are given the diameter

Correct answer:

No because this shape is flat

 

Explanation:

Volume is only a characteristic of three-dimensional shapes. We can think of volume as space within an object or shape.  Because this is a flat shape, it does not have a volume.

Example Question #58 : Measurement & Data
