Solve For Missing Dimension Given Volume (Word Problems) Worksheet

8 problems

For 6th graders, “The Solve for missing dimension given volume (word problems) Worksheet” can be used in the classroom or as a homework assignment. A pre-requisite for this worksheet is that students should be aware of the volume formulas; for example, the volume of a rectangular prism is the multiplication of length, width, and height. This worksheet provides real-life scenarios where they can apply their knowledge of geometry to solve problems. An example of the same is given below this worksheet.

For example: Jack had a truck that is 12 ft long and 6ft wide. The volume of the storage the area is 720 ft^3. What is the height of the truck?


 

Solution:

 

The height of the truck can be calculated as follows:

Volume of the storage area  = Length * width * height


 

After substituting the value the formula becomes 720 = 12 * 6 *h.

720 = 12 * 6 *h

720 = 72h

720/72 = 72h/72

10 = h

Therefore, the height of the truck is 10 ft.
