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

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.

Possible Answers:

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

 

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.

Possible Answers:

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

 

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.

Possible Answers:

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

 

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 #33 : How To Find The Volume Of A Prism

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 #34 : How To Find The Volume Of A Prism

Can we determine the volume of this shape?
