If the slant of the prism makes a

angle with the flat surface on which the prism is placed, what is the volume of water the tank can hold? Assume that each base is a rectangle. Multiply the area of the base times the height. You can find the height by using the special properties of a

- - right triangle. What is the volume of Elliot’s tank in gallons if one cubic foot of water equals

gallons? Show your steps and work. gallons
