# Suppose that each of the bases of the triangular prism in Exercise 2 has an area of 3.4 cm2 and that the altitude of the prism measures 1.2 cm. Find the volume of the prism. To determine

To find:

The volume of the prism.

Explanation

The volume of any solid is the region of space occupied by it and in general the volume of a solid is given by the product of its base area and altitude.

For a regular solid prism with base area B and altitude h, the volume is given by the formula

V=Bh.

Calculation:

Given,

Base area of the triangular prism (each) =3.4 cm2.

Altitude of the prism =1.2 cm.

Thus, here we have

B =3
