In this case, 4 × 2 × 3 = 24. So the volume of the cuboid is 24 m³.

â€‹

Note: 24 m³ is "24 cubic metres". Volume is always measured in cubic units.

â€‹

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.
