Because the Length, width and height of a cube are all the same length, the volume of a cube can be calculated using the following formula:

V = **L ^{3}** or

V =

**W**or

^{3}V =

**H**or

^{3}V =

**L x W x H**

## Example

You’ve been asked to calculate the volume of a cube with a length of 5m, a width of 5m and a height of 5m.

**V = L ^{3} or W^{3} or H^{3}**

**V = 5**

^{3}**V = 125m**

^{3}Or

**V = L x W x H**

**V = 5m x 5m x 5m**

**V = 25 x 5**

**V = 125m ^{3}**
