1.
Identify the appropriate unit that can be used to express the volume of a bucket.
 a. cubic liters b. cubic milliliters c. square feet d. miles

#### Solution:

Miles is the unit to measure distance, square feet is the unit to measure area and cubic milliliters is the unit to measure the volume of small quantities.

Volume of a bucket = length × width × height

So, the volume of the bucket will be in cubic units.

Among the choices cubic liters is the appropriate unit to measure the volume of a bucket.

2.
Identify the appropriate unit that can be used to express the volume of a jar.
 a. cubic centimeters b. cubic yards c. square centimeters d. miles

#### Solution:

Miles is the unit to measure distance, square centimeters is an unit to measure area and cubic yards is the unit to measure the volume of big containers.

Volume of a jar = length × width × height

So, the volume of the jar will be in cubic units.

Therefore, cubic centimeters is the appropriate unit to measure the volume of the jar.

3.
Find the volume of the following shape.

 a. 5 cubic units b. 4 cubic units c. 9 cubic units d. 6 cubic units

#### Solution:

Volume of the solid = number of units × volume of each unit

= 5 × 1 cubic unit = 5 cubic units

4.
Determine the volume of the following shape.

 a. 6 cubic cm b. 9 cubic cm c. 8 cubic cm d. 7 cubic cm

#### Solution:

Volume of the shape = number of units × volume of each unit

= 8 × 1 cubic cm = 8 cubic cm

5.
Determine the volume of the solid shown in the figure.

 a. 8 cubic cm b. 6 cubic cm c. 7 cubic cm d. 4 cubic cm

#### Solution:

Volume of the shape = number of units × volume of each unit

= 8 × 1 cubic cm = 8 cubic cm

6.
Determine the volume of the shape shown in the figure.

 a. 21 cubic cm b. 20 cubic cm c. 22 cubic cm d. 23 cubic cm

#### Solution:

Volume of the shape = number of units × volume of each unit

= 21 × 1 cubic cm = 21 cubic cm

7.
Find the volume of the figure. Each small cube measures 1 cm3.

 a. 6 cm3 b. 10 cm3 c. 8 cm3 d. 14 cm3

#### Solution:

Volume of the cube = number of cubes × volume of each cube

= 10 × 1 cm3

= 10 cm3
[Multiply.]

Therefore, the volume of the cube = 10 cm3.
