A triangle has an area of 25 square millimeters. A triangular prism, 16 mm long, is built from thetriangle. What is the volume of the triangular prism?

Accepted Solution

Answer:[tex]V=400\ mm^3[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:we know thatThe volume of the triangular prism is equal to[tex]V=BL[/tex]whereB is the area of the triangular baseL is the length of the triangular prism (also is called the height of the prism) is the perpendicular distance between the triangular baseswe have[tex]B=25\ mm^2[/tex][tex]L=16\ mm[/tex]substitute[tex]V=25(16)[/tex][tex]V=400\ mm^3[/tex]
