Geometry Part 25 Given Volume of Box Find Missing Dimension

Hello, I miss, listen, let's start with this video that we will talk about when we are

given

the

volume

of a box and asked to

find

the

missing

dimension

, so in this example a box has a

volume

of 1080 Cubic Feet If the

dimension

s of the base are 15 feet by 12 feet, how can we

find

the height of the box? The unknown

dimension

. We'll still use our formula for the

volume

of a box, which is

volume

equals length times width times height, or the area of ​​the base times the height, but what's

missing

this time isn't the

volume

, so we need to solve a little equation , we're going to replace v the

volume

with what equals 1080 cubic feet and that's going to be equal to the length l, which is 15 feet times the width, which is 12 feet times the height, which we all know is called x . So if we simplify on the right side of the equation we have 1080 equals 15 times 12 is 180 times x well how do we get that x alone x is multiplied by 180 so we're going to divide both sides of the equal sign by 180 to get that to balance, and so six equals x, so we just established that the height of this box is six feet.
