The volume of a rectangular prism is calculated using the formula V = l w h, where V is the volume of the prism, l and w are the length and width of the base of the prism, respectively, and h is the height of the prism.
Rewrite the formula to find the width of the base of the prism if the volume, length of the base, and height of the prism are already known.

The formula to find the width of the base of the prism is V ( l × h ) = w .
What is a rectangular prism?
A rectangular prism is a three-dimensional shape. It has 6 faces, 12 sides and 6 vertices. It also known as a cuboid.
Volume of a rectangular prism =  length  ×  width  ×  height
V = w × l × h
What is the formula to determine the value of the width?
In order to determine the value of the width given the formula for the volume, take the following steps:
Divide both sides of the equation by l
V l = w h
Divide both sides of the equation by h
V ( l × h ) = w
