That's incorrect, the 25 is the measurement of the angle, not the side.

Since we know the height of the prism is 6, all we need to know is the area of the base. Solving for the last angle of the base, we get 65 degrees. tan(65)= x/4 where x is the other leg of the triangle. X is roughly 8.58 so the area of the base of the triangle is 4 * 8.58/2= 17.16. The volume of the prism is area of base times height, so the volume of this prism is 17.16 * 6= 102.9 units^3.

 

*You'll need to know trig for this problem

Hope it helps!
