$576 \text{ cubic inches}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{The volume (V) of a cuboid is }$

$\textcolor{red}{\overline{\underline{| \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{V = l \times b \times h} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} |}}}$

$\text{where " l=" length ", b=" breadth or width ", " and }$

$h = \text{ height}$

$\text{here " l=12, b=8" and } h = 6$

$\Rightarrow V = 12 \times 8 \times 6$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\Rightarrow V} = 576 \text{ cubic inches}$
