## HMH Into Math Grade 7 Module 11 Lesson 3 Answer Key Derive and Apply a Formula for the Volume of a Right Prism

I Can accurately apply the formula to find the volume of right prisms.

Use unit cubes or graph paper to find how many 1-inch cubes could fit into a rectangular prism with edge lengths shown. Describe how you found your answer. 24 inches
Explanation:
The volume is found using the formula:
Volume = Length × Width ×  Height
Which is usually shortened to:
V = l × w × h
V = 4 x 2 x 3 = 24
24 numbers of 1-inch cubes could fit into a rectangular prism

Turn and Talk How are the dimensions of the box related to the number of unit cubes required to fill it?
Total volume size is calculated first, then sub dividing the total volume by the unit cube shows the number of unit cubes required to fill it.

Question 1.
To derive the formula for volume of any right prism, imagine filling a right rectangular prism with 1-inch cubes. A. How many 1-inch cubes can be placed along the length of the prism shown here? The width of the prism?
1-inch cubes can be placed along the length is 5
1-inch cubes can be placed along the width is 3
Explanation:
Count the cubes of the length to find the width of the prism.

B. How many cubes are needed to make one horizontal layer in the prism? Explain how you found your answer.
15 cubes are needed to make one horizontal layer in the prism
Explanation:
Horizontal prism = length x width
length = 5; width = 3
p = 5 x 3 = 15 cubes

C. How is completing the first layer like finding the area of a rectangle or a cross-section of the prism? How is it different?
1-inch cubes can be placed along the length is 5
1-inch cubes can be placed along the width is 3
Explanation:
area = length x width
area = 5 x 3 = 15

D. How will the number of cubes needed to make the first layer compare to the number of cubes needed to complete any other layer?
15 cubes
Explanation:
area = length x width
area = 5 x 3 = 15
by placing each cube of one unit in each place
15 cubes can fill the first layer

E. How many layers will it take to fill the prism shown? How did you find your answer? 4 layers
Explanation:
There are 4 cubes can be placed vertically as layer by layer, then it require 4 layers to fill the prism.

F. Using the concept of “layers,” how can you determine the number of cubes it will take to fill up the entire volume of the prism? What is the volume of the prism?
volume of the prism = total number of layers x the cubes in the each layer

G. Using Parts A through F, complete the statements to derive the formula for the volume V of a right prism.
V = (length × __________) × _____________
V = area of the __________ × _____________
V = (length × width) × height
V = area of the rectangle × height

Turn and Talk Using what you know about the formulas for area of triangles and trapezoids, will this same formula work for other types of prisms?
Yes, the formulas for area of triangles and trapezoids have the same formula work for other types of prisms.
Explanation:
Trapezoid has bases a and b, and the altitude h.
Its area is (a + b/2) x h
parallelogram: a = b => area is (a + a/2) x h = a x h
Triangle: b = 0, => area is 1/2 (a x h)

Step It Out

The formula for volume, V = Bh, is the area of the base (b) of a prism multiplied by its height (h).

Question 2.
Find the volume of the tent shown. A. Since the tent is shaped like a prism, the base of the prism is a (triangle / rectangle).

B. Write an expression for the area of the base of the prism.
B = ( ) ( ) ( )
B = 1/2 x Base x Height
Explanation:
The formula for the surface area of a prism is obtained by taking the sum of twice the base area and the lateral surface area of the prism.
The surface area of a prism is given as
S = (2 × Base Area) + (Base perimeter × height) where “S” is the surface area of the prism.
