Triangular Prism Practice

Now that you’re a pro at finding the volume of cubes and cuboids – you’re ready to tackle the triangular prism. You’ll remember that the formula for finding the area of a triangle was just ½ B X H. For finding the volume of a triangular prism, it’s exactly that, except you have to multiply it by the height of the prism too. Watch the Math Antics video at 7:14 seconds, so see a visual of this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJwecTgce6c So, V (Volume) = [L (length) X W (width) X H (height)] ÷ 2 OR Volume = Area of triangle ( ½ length X width) X Height.
