**How to solve volume of rectangular prisms word problems?**

Solving word problems that involve the volume of rectangular prisms involve using the formula for volume and interpreting the information given in the word problem.

- Read the problem carefully and identify what it’s asking for. This could be the total volume of a rectangular prism, the missing dimension (length, width, or height) given the volume and other two dimensions, or the amount of material needed to fill the prism.
- Look for numbers or measurements mentioned in the problem. These might represent the length, width, height, or volume of the rectangular prism.
- Pay attention to words that indicate the dimensions of the prism (length, width, height), or the volume itself (volume, cubic units, capacity).
- Apply the volume formula:

The volume of a rectangular prism is calculated by multiplying the length (l), width (w), and height (h) of the prism. The formula is: Volume = l × w × h. - If the problem involves finding a missing dimension or solving a multi-step process, you can set up an equation using variables to represent the unknown values.
- Solve the equation or perform the calculation:

Substitute the known values (dimensions or volume) into the formula or equation and solve for the unknown variable (missing dimension). If the problem asks about the amount of material needed, you might need to calculate the surface area (depending on whether the entire prism needs to be covered) and relate it to the material required (e.g., paint needed to coat the entire box). - Interpret the answer:

Double-check your calculations for accuracy.

Ensure your answer is in the appropriate unit (cubic units for volume
