## Instructions

- 1
Measure the width of the cube. For example, assume the width of a cube measures 1.3 meters.

- 2
Measure a height of the cube. For example, assume the height of a cube measures 1.7 meters.

- 3
Measure the depth of a cube. For example, assume the depth of a cube measures .6 meters.

- 4
Multiply the width by the height by the depth. Continuing the same example, 1.3 x 1.7 x .6 = 1.326 meters cubed. This figure represents the volume expressed in cubic meters for the cube.
