1. ## Volume and Dimensions

Hello all. I'm sorry to bother you all with this question. It's been a long time since I've actually thought about math. I've been doing a lot of google searching for the answer that I need. If it is a simple answer I apologize in advance.

Anywho. Here is the question.

I know how to find the volume of a cube or rectangluar box, it's simple

V = a * b * c.

I however have been trying to figure out what the equation is if you already have the volume and 2 of the other sides and just need to calculate the remaining side.

Thank You,

Will

You know that V= abc so if you know V and the two sides, a and b, then the third side is given by $\displaystyle c= \frac{V}{ab}$.

That is, divide both sides of V= abc by ab.
