Finding Unknown Dimensions on a Irregular Prism

Now that we have helped Batman begin to build a new Gotham City, it's time to take our new knowledge of finding the volume of irregular prisms to the next step. When we found the volume of the buildings of Cubicopolis, we could find the length, width, and height of the buildings by counting the omnifix cubes. Sometimes those cubes are not there and we need to be able to figure out dimensions from other information. Today we are going to begin learning how to do this. Directions: 1. Watch the tutorial attached to this activity. 2. For each slide of the assignment, use the given numbers to find the dimensions of the prism you are working with. 3. Use those dimensions (length, width, and height) to find the volume of the prism. 4. INCLUDE THE CORRECT UNITS OF MEASUREMENT IN YOUR ANSWER. (For example: cubic inches)
