VOLUME OF CUBES, CUBOIDS AND TRIANGULAR PRISMS

In this module, you can study how to find the volume or capacity of cubescuboids (rectangular prisms) and triangular prisms.

 

The first video (above) is Khan Academy's explanation for finding the volume of both cuboids and triangular prisms.

 

The above video contains an explanation on finding the volume of triangular prisms and cuboids.
