To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the base, width, and height. If the prism is irregularly shaped, multiply the base and the height.

area of base x height area of base x height

The volume of a three-dimensional figure is the amount of space it encloses. The volume V of a triangular prism is the product of the area B of a base and the height h of the prism. (The bases are triangles. In a special case of a right triangular prism the bases are right triangles)

Volume of rectangular prism: 3*4.5*6 = 81 cubic meters

I presume you mean a rectangular prism. Assuming all the angles are right angles, so that it is a rectangular parallelepiped, the volume is just the product of the three dimensions. I get 90.

If you mean volume of a trapezoidal prism then it is: 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*height*length

A right trapezoidal prism has 12 sides. Any prism has three times the number of sides of its cross-sectional shape. A trapezoid has four sides, so a [right] trapezoidal prism has 3 x 4 = 12 sides.

To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the base, width, and height. If the prism is irregularly shaped, multiply the base and the height.

No, it cannot.

the volume of a trapezoidal prism is equal to the height times the base area of the trapezoid. First you find the area of trapezoid h(a+b)/2 h is the height of the trapezoid, not the height of the prism a is the length of the top b is the length of the bottom Then you find the volume of the trapezoidal prism with this formula H*h(a+b)/2 H is the height of the prism. Multiply H by the area of the trapezoid that you found in step one.

It is the area of the trapezoidal face multiplied by the length of the prism.

No clue... But I know who else knows the trapezoidal prism... MY MOM! Sorry, I had to say that... but seriously, MY MOM KNOWS! woop!

The volume of any right prism is the area of the base, in this case a trapezoid, multiplied by the height of the prism. The formula for the area of a trapezoid is A = 1/2h(a + b) where a and b are the bases of the trapezoid (the parallel sides). Once you calculate the area of the trapezoidal base of the prism, multiply that number by its height to get its volume.

The first is a two dimensional concept, the second is 3-dimensional.
