View Full Version : volum of solid
The front, side, and bottom faces of a rectangular solid have areas of 24 square cm, 8 square cm, and 3 square cm, respectively. What is the volume of the solid, in cubic centimeters? :?: :?: :?:
The sides are a, b & c
That gives three equations in three unknowns.
what should I do next to solve for a, b, c?
The first step might be dividing
ac/bc = a/b = 8/3
That gives two equations in two unknowns.
Thanks alot for your help
I've figured out a=4,b=3,and c=2.
Better check your work.
and don't forget you are after the volume.
I think I know where I made the mistake
is a=8, b=3, c=1?
Ya got it now.
