It doesn't matter.

Either doesn't really matter.

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.

Width should always be first.

perimeter = length + length + width + width = 2*length + 2*width = 36 length = 5*width 2*(5*width) + 2*width = 36 12*width = 36 width = 3 length = 15

in most documentation the length comes 1st but it usually doesn't matter unless you are doing something other than adding or multiplying.

width always comes first

for what? usually when you say the two, length is said first

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.

It doesn't matter but Length * Width * Height is usually how people say it :D

Width should always be first.

It makes absolutly no difference, you will still come up with the same amount. Generally I would do width x length and then the height. That way when you write it down the larger number is on top.

perimeter = length + length + width + width = 2*length + 2*width = 36 length = 5*width 2*(5*width) + 2*width = 36 12*width = 36 width = 3 length = 15
