## The volume of the prism is shown as 61.6in³. What is the height of the prism?

## Answer:

To solve for the height of the prism, we can use the formula V = lwh. Given that the volume is 61.6in³ and the length and width are 8in and 2.2in respectively, we can calculate the height as follows:

First, let's rearrange the formula V = lwh to solve for height:
**h = V / lw**

Substitute the given values into the formula:
**h = 61.6 / (8 x 2.2) = 61.6 / 17.6 = 3.5in**

Therefore, the height of the prism is 3.5 inches.
