# How do you find cubic?

**Method 1**

**Calculating the Volume of a Box in Cubic Inches**

- Measure the length, width, and depth of an object in inches.
- Write the length of your object.
- Multiply the length by the width of your object.
- Multiply your answer by the depth of your object.
- Label your answer in cubic inches.

### What is the formula for a cube?

The

**formula**to find the volume multiplies the length by the width by the height. The good news for a**cube**is that the measure of each of these dimensions is exactly the same. Therefore, you can multiply the length of any side three times. This results in the**formula**: Volume = side * side * side.#### How do you calculate the area?

To find the**area**of a rectangle multiply its height by its width. For a square you only need to find the length of one of the sides (as each side is the same length) and then multiply this by itself to find the**area**.#### What is the formula for finding the area?

The most basic**area formula**is the**formula**for the**area**of a rectangle. A = lw (rectangle). That is, the**area**of the rectangle is the length multiplied by the width. As a special case, as l = w in the case of a square, the**area**of a square with side length s is given by the**formula**: A = s^{2}(square).#### What is the formula for volume?

**Volume**is measured in "cubic" units.**Volume**of a cube = side times side times side. Since each side of a square is the same, it can simply be the length of one side cubed. If a square has one side of 4 inches, the**volume**would be 4 inches times 4 inches times 4 inches, or 64 cubic inches.

### How do you calculate a cubic meter?

Measure the width and write this number down. Multiply the three measurements. The answer is given in

**cubic meters**. For example, if the height of your object was 12**meters**, the length was 6**meters**and the width was 2**meters**, you would multiply 12 times 6 times 2 to get 144**cubic meters**.#### How do you figure out cubic feet?

**Calculating cubic feet**from inches. If you have measured the dimensions of your item in inches then do the following: Multiply your length, width and height figures together, giving you a total in**cubic**inches (in^{3}) Divide the total by 1728 (as there are 1728**cubic**inches in a**cubic foot**).#### How do you find cubic centimeters?

**Calculate**Volume of a Cube.**Calculate**the volume of a square or rectangular cube using the**formula**V = l × w × h. Begin by multiplying length × width × height. So if your cube is 5**cm**long, 3**cm**wide and 2**cm**tall, its volume is 5 × 3 × 2 = 30**cubic centimeters**.#### How do you calculate a cubic meter?

**Measure**the width and write this number down. Multiply the three measurements. The answer is given in**cubic meters**. For example, if the height of your object was 12**meters**, the length was 6**meters**and the width was 2**meters**, you would multiply 12 times 6 times 2 to get 144**cubic meters**.

### How do I cube a number?

**Cube numbers**are formed by multiplying a digit by itself three times. Each

**cube number**can be represented by a

**cube**made up of unit

**cubes**. Use your calculator to find the next six

**cube numbers**(from 5 onwards) - then check your answer. 125 = 5 × 5 × 5, 216 = 6 × 6 × 6, etc.

#### What is the number cube?

The result of using a whole**number**in a multiplication three times. Example: 3 × 3 × 3 = 27, so 27 is a**cube number**. Here are the first few**cube numbers**: 1 (=1×1×1)#### What is a cube number for?

A**cube number**is a**number**that is the product of three**numbers**which are the same. In other words, if you multiply a**number**by itself and then by itself again, the result is a**cube number**. This diagram makes this concept clearer:**Cube numbers**can be represented visually as 3D**cubes**of single, unit**cubes**.#### What is an example of a perfect cube?

A**perfect cube**is a number that is the**cube**of an integer. Some**examples**of**perfect cubes**are 1, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216, 343, .. The opposite of cubing a number is finding the**cube**root.
