Here is the formula for calculating volume Cubes quoted from books Class VIII Junior High School Mathematics, Trija Fayeldi (2007: 185). Actually the volume of a cube can be found using the formula for the volume of a prism, which is the area of ​​the base x height.

Volume of cube = area of ​​base x height

That is it formula To calculate the volume of a cube, s itself is the length of the edge of the cube. Hopefully this information is useful for students who are undergoing distance learning (PJJ). (WWN)
