Volume of rectangular prism: length times width times height

#### Explanation:

The prism that Matt built is 5 cm by 2 cm by 4 cm

$5 \cdot 2 \cdot 4 = 40$ The volume is 40 cubed centimeters

The prism that Mindy built is 5 in by 2 in by 4 in

$5 \cdot 2 \cdot 4 = 40$ The volume is 40 cubed inches
