Find the volume of the composed figure.

Question 1. ________
Volume of composed figure is 100 cubic in,

Explanation:
Given to find the volume of composed figure,
we separately calculate volumes of top and bottom of prisms then add so base rectangular prism has length 8 in,
width 5 in and height 2 in, volume of bottom prism is
8 in X 5 in X 2 in = 80 cubic in, the top prism dimensions are length 1 in, width 5 in and height 4 in(6 in – 2 in), volume of top prism is
1 in X 5 in X 4 in = 20 cubic in, Now the volume of composed figure is  80 cubic in + 20 cubic in = 100 cubic in.

Question 2. ________
Volume of composed figure is 190 cubic ft,

Explanation:
Given to find the volume of composed figure,
we separately calculate volumes of top and bottom of prisms then add so base rectangular prism has length 8 ft,
width 5 ft and height 4 ft, volume of bottom prism is
8 ft X 5 ft X 4 ft = 160 cubic ft, the top prism dimensions are length 2 ft, width 5 ft and height 3 ft, volume of top prism is
2 ft X 5 ft X 3 ft = 30 cubic ft, Now the volume of composed figure is 160 cubic ft + 30 cubic ft = 190 cubic ft.

• How much foam does Carlo need? ______

Volume of the chair by breaking apart is 8,800 cubic in,
Volume of the chair using subtraction is 8,800 cubic in,
Carlo needs 8,800 cubic in of foam,

Explanation:
Given Carlo is making a fabric chair filled with foam using the design shown
1. The volume of the chair by breaking apart the figure into right rectangular prisms as top and bottom bottom prism dimensions length is 20 in, width 20 in and height 16 in , volume of bottom prism is
20 in X 20 in X 16 in = 6,400 cubic in,
Top prism dimensions are length 20 in, width 5 in and height is 24 in( 40 in – 16 in), volume of top prism is
20 in X 5 in X 24 in = 2,400 cubic in,
Total volume of the chair by breaking apart is
6,400 cubic in + 2,400 cubic in = 8,800 cubic in,
2. Volume of the chair using subtraction is
Volume of total chair with space minus
volume of the space, Dimensions of total chair is length 20 in, width 20 in and height is 40 in,
volume = 20 in X 20 in X 40 in = 16,000 cubic in,
Volume of space dimensions are length 20 in, width 15 in and height is 24 in (40 in – 16 in),
Volume = 20 in X 15 in X 24 in = 7,200 cubic in,
Volume of chair is 16,000 cubic in – 7,200 cubic in = 8,800 cubic in,
3. Carlo needs 8,800 cubic in. of foam.

Find the volume of the composed figure.

Question 4. ________
Volume of composed figure is 152 cubic cm,

Explanation:
Given to find the volume of composed figure, we separately calculate volumes of base 1 of prisms and extended base then add so base 1 rectangular prism has length 8 cm, width 8 cm and height 2 cm, volume of base 1 prism is 8 cm X 8 cm X 2 cm = 128 cubic cm, the extended base prism dimensions are length 3 cm, width 4 cm and height 2 cm, volume of extended base prism is 3 cm X 4 cm X 2 cm = 24 cubic cm, Now the volume of composed figure is 128 cubic cm + 24 cubic cm = 152 cubic cm.

Question 5. ________
Volume of composed figure is 140 cubic cm,

Explanation:
Given to find the volume of composed figure,
we separately calculate volumes of top and bottom of prisms then add so base rectangular prism has length 8 cm,
width 5 cm and height 2 cm, volume of bottom prism is 8 cm X 5 cm X 2 cm = 80 cubic cm, the top prism dimensions are length 3 cm, width 5 cm and height 4 cm(6 cm – 2 cm), volume of top prism is 3 cm X 5 cm X 4 cm = 60 cubic cm, Now the volume of composed figure is 80 cubic cm + 60 cubic cm = 140 cubic cm.

Question 6.
Reason The volume of the composed figure shown is 88 cubic inches. What is the unknown number? Explain how you know. Unknown number is 4 in,

Explanation:
Given the volume of the composed figure shown is 88 cubic inches. Asking the unknown number?
we separately calculate volumes of  top and bottom of prisms then add so base rectangular prism has length 8 in,
width 2 in and height 4 in(7in – 3 in), volume of bottom prism is
8 in X 2 in X 4 in = 64 cubic in,
we will have unknow space length as x the top prism dimensions are length (8 in – x in), width 2 in and height 7 in, volume of top prism is
(8 in – x in) X 2 in X 3 in = (8 in – x in) x 6  square in,
Given the volume of composed figure as 88 cubic in,
so 64 cubic in +  (8 in – x in) x 6 square in = 88 cubic in,
(8 in – x in) x 6 square in = 88 cubic in – 64 cubic in = 24 cubic in,
(8 in – x in) = 24 cubic in ÷  6 square in = 4 in,
So x in = 8 in  – 4 in = 4 in.
therefore unknown number is 4 in.

Explanation:
Given to find the volume of composed figure,

volume of base 1 prism is
50 m X 30 m X 12 m = 18,000 cubic m,
the extended base prism dimensions are
length 15 m, width 10 m and height 5 m,
volume of extended base prism is

width 12 cm and height 7 cm(10 cm – 3 cm),
volume of bottom prism is 28 cm X 12 cm X 7 cm =
2,352 cubic cm, the top prism dimensions are
length 8 cm, width 12 cm and height 3cm,
volume of top prism is 12 cm X 8 cm X 3 cm = 288 cubic cm,
Now the volume of composed figure is
2,352 cubic cm + 288 cubic cm = 2,640 cubic cm.

Question 13. _________ Volume of composed figure is 216 cubic in,

Explanation:
Wrote the unknown dimensions as width of
bottom prism as 4 in and length of top prism as 14 in,
Given to find the volume of composed figure,

We separately calculate volumes of top and bottom of prisms
then add so base rectangular prism has length 5 ft,
width 2 ft and height 3 ft, volume of bottom prism is
5 ft X 2 ft X 3 ft = 30 cubic ft, the top
prism dimensions are length 3 ft, width 2 ft
and height 1 ft, volume of top prism is
3 ft X 2 ft X 1 ft = 6 cubic ft, Now the volume of
composed figure is 30 cubic ft + 6 cubic ft = 36 cubic ft.

Question 15.
Model with Mathematics Write a subtraction expression to model the volume of the solid figure. Subtraction expression to model the volume of
the solid figure is 384 cubic cm.

Explanation:
Writing a subtraction expression to model the
volume of the solid figure first we calculate
the volume of rectangular prism with space then
subtract volume of space, So the volume of
rectangular prism with space as length 12 cm,
width 6 cm and height 10 cm is
12 cm X 6 cm X 10 cm = 720 cubic cm,
Volume of the space is length = 12 cm – 4 cm = 8 cm,
width = 6 cm and height = 10 cm – 3 cm = 7 cm,
so 8 cm X 6 cm X 7 cm = 336 cubic cm,
Now subtraction expression to model the volume of
the solid figure is  720 cubic cm – 336 cubic cm = 384 cubic cm.
