The pattern, shown, is folded along the dashed lines to make a right triangular prism. What is the volume, in cubic units, of the triangular prism?

Volume = base area * height

The base area is a right triangle with legs of 3 and 4 cm......the area = (1/2) (product of the legs) =

(1/2) ( 3 * 4) = 6 cm^2

The height = 8 cm

Volume = (6) (8) = 48 cm^3
