Find the volume of the shape given the length of one cube is one centimeter.
This shape is three cubes long by three cubes wide by three cubes tall. One cube is one centimeter long. And that means three cubes would measure three centimeters. This shape is three centimeters by three centimeters by three centimeters. We find the volume of this shape by multiplying its length times its width times its height.
In this shape, the length, the width, and the height are all the same. So we multiply three times three times three. Three times three is nine. Nine times three is 27. Three times three times three equals 27. Because we multiplied centimeters times centimeters times centimeters, the units here is centimeters cubed. The volume of the shape given is 27 centimeters cubed.
