Answer:

#"3.63 cm"^3#

Explanation:

The formula for the volume of a rectangular solid is

#color(blue)(bar(ul(|color(white)(a/a) V = lwh color(white)(a/a)|)))" "#

#V = 21.1 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("mm"))) × 14.2 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("mm"))) × 12.1 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("mm"))) × ("1 cm"/(10 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("mm")))))^3 = "3.63 cm"^3#
