For example: Joey made a pot of soup to share with her neighbors. He gave each neighbor a rectangular container measuring 10 cm by 8 cm by 12 cm, filled with soup. How much soup was in each container?

**Solution:**

Volume of a rectangular container can be calculated as follows:

V = length * width * height

V = 10 * 8 * 12

V = 960

Therefore, the amount of soup in each container is 960 cm^3.
