Can you please solve it and show me the work?

How do you normally compute volume? What's the volume of a cube? What's the volume of a rectangular prism?

We don't operate that way here on MHB. Students do the heavy lifting, as they should. We help you get unstuck on a particular point or step.Can you please solve it and show me the work?

Vol. Of the cube is L^3 and vol of regtangular prism is Lxwxh , but i still cant find this relevant

If the base is square-shaped, how does that change your volume formula?

That sounds like an idea to me! It is correct. So you have a formula for the volume:i have no idea but ive read some where that a square based rectangular box is W^2h

$$V=w^{2}h.$$

What is the problem asking you to do?
