Steve’s pets world sells aquariums that are rectangular prisms. The volume V of
an aquarium is given by the formula V=Lwh where L is the length, w is the width,
and h is the height.
Solve the formula for h.
Use the rewritten formula to find the height of the
aquarium shown, which has a volume of 5850 cubic
inches.
In #’s 2-4 Solve for y in terms of x.
