Eric builds a small pyramid for a school project. His pyramid has a height of twelve inches and a square base that measures ten inches on each side. Eric wants to find the smallest cube-shaped box to put his pyramid in so that he can safely bring it to school right side up. What is the volume of this box, in inches cubed?

hint: answer is a whole number

If it is a CUBE shaped box, the side length will have to be 12 inches to match the height

12 x 12 x 12 = 1728 in3
