A cube formed by 8 cubes.Reynaldo has a stack of blocks on his desk, as shown at right.  

  1. If his stack is blocks wide,  blocks long, and  blocks tall, how many blocks are in his stack?

    (width)(length)(height) = the number of blocks in each stack

  2. What if his stack instead is blocks wide,  blocks long, and  blocks tall? How many blocks are in this stack?

    See part (a) for help.

  3. What if his stack contains blocks, is  blocks tall, blocks long, and blocks wide? What could and be?

    Use the equation in part (a).
    Substitute into the number of blocks and into the height.
    What would and have to be in order to make this equation true?

Use the eTool below model the stacks of blocks for each part.
