What is the volume of a cube whose edge length is eight centimetres?
The volume of a cuboid is calculated by multiplying the length by the width by the height. As all the edges of a cube are of the same length, we can calculate the volume of a cube by cubing the length. In our example, all of the edges are eight centimetres long. This means that the volume can be worked out by cubing eight centimetres. Eight multiplied by eight is 64. And 64 multiplied by eight is 512. This means that the volume of a cube whose edge length is eight centimetres is 512 cubic centimetres.
