How to find the volume of a composite rectangular prism?

To find the volume of a composite rectangular prism, you need to break down the shape into simpler rectangular prisms and add up their volumes.

Here are the steps to find the volume of a composite rectangular prism:

1. Identify the simpler rectangular prisms that make up the composite rectangular prism. These may be sections that have different lengths, widths, or heights.
2. Find the length, width, and height of each of the simpler rectangular prisms.
3. Calculate the volume of each of the simpler rectangular prisms by multiplying their length, width, and height together.
4. Add up the volumes of all the simpler rectangular prisms to find the total volume of the composite rectangular prism.
