What you would do first is multiply  22in times 12in, which is [latex] 264in^{2} [/latex]. Then, you would do that times 15in, which is [latex] 3960in^{3} [/latex]. So, the answer to the first question is [latex] 3960in^{3} [/latex]. The next answer would be that no, the volume would not change because taking off the lid will not change how much the aquarium can hold.
