Storage Lockers

Solution

five geometric cubic shapes

Explanation

  1. Find the volume of storage lockers A, B, and D in cubic feet.
    Step 1: Find the area of the base: B = l x w
    Step 2: Multiply the area of the base times the height: B x h
  2. Find the volume of storage lockers C and E in cubic feet.
    Step 1: Find the length of each unlabeled side.
    Step 2: Divide each locker into 2 rectangles.
    Step 3: Use the formula B = l x w to find the area of each base.
    Step 4: Multiply B x h to get the volume of each prism.
    Step 5: Add the volumes of the two prisms to get the volume of the storage locker.
  3. List the storage lockers from smallest to largest.
  4. Use the clues to match each storage locker to its owner.
