## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Recognize Volume As An Attribute: Ccss.Math.Content.5.Md.C.3

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

Explanation:

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

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

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

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 #691 : Geometry

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

Yes because we know the area

No because this shape is flat

No because this shape has too many sides

Yes because we are given the volume formula

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 #1 : Recognize Volume As An Attribute: Ccss.Math.Content.5.Md.C.3

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

No because this shape is flat

No because the sides are not the same

Yes because this is a closed shape

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

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 #1 : Recognize Volume As An Attribute: Ccss.Math.Content.5.Md.C.3

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

No because this shape is flat

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

No because we were not given the area

Yes because we are given the width

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 #31 : How To Find The Volume Of A Prism

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

No because we were not given the area

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

Yes because we are given the length

No because this shape is flat

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 #32 : How To Find The Volume Of A Prism

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

No because we were not given the area

Yes because we are given the length

Yes because this is a three-dimensional shape

No because this shape is flat

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 #33 : How To Find The Volume Of A Prism

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

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

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 #34 : How To Find The Volume Of A Prism

Can we determine the volume of this shape?

Yes because we are given the diameter

Yes because we are given the radius

No because this shape is round

No because this shape is flat

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 #35 : How To Find The Volume Of A Prism
