Volume of a Cuboid

A cuboid is a 3 dimensional shape.
So to work out the volume we need to know 3 measurements.

 
Look at this shape.
There are 3 different measurements:
Height,   Width,   Length
The volume is found using the formula:
Volume = Height × Width × Length
Which is usually shortened to:
V = h × w × l
Or more simply:
V = hwl

In Any Order

It doesn't really matter which one is length, width or height, so long as you multiply all three together.

Example: What is the volume:

The volume is:
4 × 5 × 10 = 200 units3

It also works out the same like this:
10 × 5 × 4 = 200 units3
