Answer:

40

Step-by-step explanation:

The first step is to calculate the base area of the prism

= 15×30

= 450

The volume is then calculated as follows

= 450×h

= 450h

The capacity is 18 liters

= 18×1000

= 18,000

Therefore the height of the rectangular prism can be calculated as follows

450h= 18,000

h= 18,000/450

= 40

Hence the height is 40 cm
