Question

What is the length of the height of a prism that has a base of 5 m, a width of 3 m and a volume of 90 m²?

The length of the height of the prism is 6 m

### Calculating the volume of a prism

From the question, we are to determine the length of the height of the prism
The volume of a prism is given by the formula,
Volume = width × base × height
Thus,
Height = Volume / (width × base)
From the given information,
base = 5 m
width =  3m
Volume = 90 m³
Putting the parameters into the formula, we get
Height = 90 /(3 × 5)
Height = 90 / 15
Height = 6 m
Hence, the length of the height of the prism is 6 m
