Volume = Length x Width x Height.

If the prism is square, then

either Height = Width

or Height = Length

In the first case,

Volume = Length x Width2 and so Width = sqrt(Volume/Length) and Height = Width.

In the second case,

Volume = Length2 x Width and so Width = Volume/Length2 and Height = Length.

If the shape is 3-dimensional rectangular or square then: volume = height x length x width (so you need to know the volume as well) therefore: height = volume divided by length x width H= Vol / L x W

You have to know that [ Volume = (length) x (width) x (height) ]. Then, you can divide each side of that equation by (length x height), and you wind up with Width = Volume/(length x height)

You cannot: given only the volume, there is no way to determine the length, or width or height. If you double the length and halve the width you would still have the same volume.

you can't. you must be given the length, width and height as the formula is: lhw (length x height x width).

width = volume/(length*height)

width = volume/(length*height)

By dividing length times width into its given volume

volume is length X width X height. so, divide the volume by the base.

It is impossible unless the question asks you to find the length when given the volume and height and/or width.

The length and volume are not sufficient to determine the width and height.
