### Example Question #931 : Ssat Upper Level Quantitative (Math)

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

**Possible Answers:**

Yes because this is a closed shape

Yes because we are given all of the side lengths

No because this shape only has three sides

No because this shape is flat

**Correct answer:**

No because this shape is flat

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.
