# Volume of a Triangular Prism

Welcome to the wonderful world of 3-D measurement! Â 3-D stands for three dimensional, as in geometric shapes that have a length, width, and a height. Â These shapes are not flat, like two dimensional shapes. Â Instead, they jump off of the page, right at Â you.

How to find the volume of a triangular prism? Â In order to figure out how much stuff fits into a 3-D shape, we calculate the volume of that shape. Â To Â find the volume of aÂ triangular prism, we must find the area of its base, which is a triangle, of course. Â Then we multiply that area times Â the height of the shape.

For those students that prefer formulas, here it is:

Volume (triangular Â prism) = Â (1/2 x length x width) x height

Parents, students, and teachers, enjoy these free volume worksheets. Â As usual, each worksheets comes with an answer key and is completely customizable. Â Plus, they’re always free!

Volume of a Triangular Prism Worksheet 1 – Here is a nine problem math worksheet that helps you practice finding the volume of a triangular prism. You will be given the length, width, and height of each prism.
