What is the formula for the volume of a rectangular solid? Find an object in your residence that has the shape of a rectangular solid. Measure and record the length, width, and height of your object in either centimeters (to the nearest 10th of a centimeter) or inches (to the nearest quarter of an inch). Compute the volume of your solid and include units with your answer. You do not need to use fractions in your computations; their decimal equivalents are fine. Include the type of object, the measurements, and show how you obtained the volume. Please summarize your results in a brief sentence using the correct units of measure for volume.
