The volume of each cube  = (side)^3  = (1/3)^3  = 1/27 cubic units

 

The number of cubes  that will fill the prism  =

 

Vol of prism            4

__________  =    _____  =    4 * 27   =   108 cubes

Vol of cube            (1/27)

Find the volume of the small cubes first. 

 

(1/3)^3 = 1/27.

 

4 divided by 1/27 equals 4*27 which is 108 unit cubes.
