How Do You Find the Volume of a Shape?

Answer

Finding the volume or area of a shape is calculated differently for different shapes. For example, the area of a square or rectangle is figured by multiplying the length x width. If this were a three dimensional box, you would times that resulting number by the height. A triangle would be calculated by length of the base x height divided by 2. If this object were a pyramid with a square bottom, the base dimension would be multiplied by itself, times the height, and divided by 3. A circle's area is found by multiplying the radius by 3.141592654 (pi) and then multiplying the resulting number by itself. If this object were a cylinder, the resulting number would be multiplied by the height. You can find more information here: http://www.mathwizz.com/geometry/help/help2.htm
