How deep is the water in the trough if a water trough is in the shape of a rectangular prism that is 12 feet long by 3 feet wide and has 9.4 cubic feet of water?
The depth of the trough is
To calculate height (depth), divide the given volume by the product of the length and width.
Convert feet to inches.
A rectangular prism is a 3D shape with 6 faces, where each face is a rectangle.
A rectangle has 4 sides where all 4 corners are right angles (a square is a rectangle with all sides the same length).
The volume of a rectangular prism is length * width * height
So the volume of water in the trough is
