A box is the shape of a right rectangular prism. The box has a square base that is 6 inches wide. The box has a volume of 864 cubic inches. What is the length of one of the lateral edges?
The formula for the volume of a rectangular prism is V=l*w*h where l=length, w=width and h=height Plug in the data we know (remember that since the base is a square, both the length and width are 6 inches) 864=6*6*h 864=36*h divide both sides by 36 24=h Height=24inches Answer=24in
