Topic 2: Volume
The volume of a cuboid = length × height × depth.
In this case, 4 × 2 × 3 = 24. So the volume of the cuboid is 24 m³.
Note: 24 m³ is "24 cubic metres". Volume is always measured in cubic units.
The index number ³ is used to show cubic units, because a volume is a 3-dimensional space.
The diagram below may help to illustrate that this cuboid has a volume of 24 cubic metres. It shows the cuboid divided into 24 cubes each of 1 cubic metre.
