The shape in the figure is to be submerged in water. How much water, in cubic centimeters, would be displaced by the prism? Q3:

Work out the volume of the triangular prism shown. • A54 units3
• B18 units3
• C60 units3
• D27 units3
• E108 units3

Q4:

Work out the volume of the triangular prism shown. • A210 units3
• B130 units3
• C140 units3
• D840 units3
• E420 units3

Q5:

A triangular prism of volume 132 yd3 has height 11 yd. If the triangular section has altitude 6 yd, what is this triangle’s base?

Q6:

The triangular section of a triangular prism has base length of 9 ft and altitude 6 ft. If the prism has height 5 ft, what is its volume?

Q7:

Given that the triangular prisms shown are similar and that the volume of the bigger prism is 2,112 in3, determine the volume of the smaller prism. Q8:

Find, to the nearest tenth, the volume of the solid formed by the given net. Q9:
