Question

Angie is determining the volume of a box in the shape of a rectangular prism. She finds the length is 2cm more than the width and 3 cm less than the depth. Which equation can Angie use to get the volume of the box, in cubic centimeters?
A. V = w(w+2)(w+3)
B. V = w(w+2)(w+5)
C. V = w(w-2)(w-3)
D. V = (w+2)(w+5)

The volume of a box in the shape of a rectangular prism is y³ +7y² +10y cm³.
What is a rectangular Prism ?
A polyhedron with two congruent and parallel bases is known as a rectangular prism. It’s also known as a cuboid.
A rectangular prism has six faces, each of which is in the shape of a rectangle and has twelve edges. It’s called a prism because of its cross-section along its length.
It is given that length of the rectangular prism has length of 2 cm more than  the width and 3 cm less than the depth
Let the depth be x cm
and width be y cm
Then the length will be y+2 cm and x-3 cm
y+2 = x- 3
x = y+5
A rectangular prism is a cuboid with six faces
Volume of a rectangular prism can be written as
length * width * depth
= (y+2) *x*y
= (y+2)* (y+5)*y
= (y²+2y)(y+5)
= y³ +5y²+2y²+10y
= y³ +7y² +10y cm³
Therefore the volume of a box in the shape of a rectangular prism is y³ +7y² +10y cm³.
