Which of these is equal to the volume of a cuboid? Height times perimeter of the base, width times base area, height times base area, length times width plus height.

First, let’s sketch a cuboid. A cuboid is a three-dimensional shape with six faces. And all angles are right angles. We also might call it a rectangular prism. The volume of this cuboid is its capacity. We can find that by seeing the space that the bottom takes up and multiplying that by how tall the figure is, the area of the base multiplied by the height.

And that would be represented by option c, the height multiplied by the base area.
