## PARCC Short Practice

Jason calculated the volume of the rectangular prism shown, in cubic units. Jason's work is shown.

I counted that the prism is 3 cubes wide and 4 cubes long. The base layer can hold 12 cubes since 3 x 4 = 12. The prism is 3 layers high, so I added 12 + 12 + 12 to get a total of 36 cubic units for a volume.
