The volume of a rectangular prism is found by:  length x width x height.

 

The volume of the outer rectangular prism is:  6 cm  x  3 cm  x  4 cm   =  72 cu cm

 

The volume of the inner rectangular prism is:  3 cm  x  1 cm  x  4cm  =  12 cu cm.

 

The volume of the part is:  72 cu cm  -  12  cu cm  =  60 cu cm
