Volume of Prisms

Volume is the amount of space an object takes up. The units of volume are cubic. To find the volume o a prism we use the formula: V = B • h *IMPORTANT* The capital “B” stands for the “area” of the base shape, and the “h” stands for the height of the prism. Example 1: Step 1: Write the Read more about Volume of Prisms[…]

Area of Trapezoids

A trapezoid is a polygon with only one pair of parallel lines. To find the area of a Trapezoid we use the following formula: A = h • (b1+b2) ÷ 2   Example 1:   Step 1: Write the formula A = h • (b1+b2) ÷ 2 Step 2: Substitute the variables A = 5 • (8 + 4) ÷ 2 Step Read more about Area of Trapezoids[…]
