Welcome to our Volume of a Box Calculator page.

We explain how to find the volume of a cuboid, or box, and provide a quick calculator to work it out for you, step-by-step.

There are also lots of worked examples and links to some worksheets for you to practice this skill.

This calculator finds the volume of a cuboid (or box) when the side lengths are known.

- Choose the length, width and height of the rectangle: you can choose a whole number, decimal or fraction.
- You can type a fraction by typing the numerator then '/' then the denominator.
- You can type a mixed number by typing the whole-number part, then a space then the fraction part.
- Examples: 2 1/2 (two and one-half); 3 4/5 (three and four-fifths); 7 1/3 (seven and one-third).

- Choose your units of measurement (default is none)
- Choose your desired accuracy (default is 2 decimal places)
- Click the Find Surface Area button
- You will be shown the area as a decimal (and also a fraction if you typed the length as a fraction).

Below is the formula for the volume of a box.

The formula for the volume of a box (or cuboid) is: \[ V = lwh \; \]

where l is the length, w is the width, and h is the height of the cuboid

Find the volume of the box below.

The box has the following dimensions:

- Length: 7 cm
- Width: 3 cm
- Height: 5 cm

The volume of the box is:

\[ V = lwh \; \]

where l is the length, w is the width, and h is the height of the box

So if we substitute the values of the length and width into this equation, we get: \[ V = 7 \cdot 3 \cdot 5 = 105 \]

The volume of the box is 105 cm^{3}.

Find the volume of the box below.

The box has the following dimensions:

- Length (l):12 in
- Width (w): 5 in
- Height (h): 3 in

The volume of the box is:

\[ V = lwh \; \]

So if we substitute the values of the length and width into this equation, we get: \[ V = 12 \cdot 5 \cdot 3 = 180 \]

The volume of the box is 180 in^{3}.

Find the volume of the box below.

The box has the following dimensions:

- Length (l): 5.6 cm
- Width (w): 4.3 cm
- Height (h): 2.5 cm

The volume of the box is:

\[ V = lwh \; \]

So if we substitute the values of the length and width into this equation, we get: \[ V = 5.6 \cdot 4.3 \cdot 2.5 = 60.2 \]

The volume of the box is 60.2 cm^{3}.

Find the volume of the box below.

The box has the following dimensions:

- Length (l): 8 in
- Width (w): ¾ in
- Height (h): 5 ½ in

The volume of the box is:

\[ V = lwh \; \]

So if we substitute the values of the length and width into this equation, we get: \[ V = 8 \cdot {3 \over 4} \cdot 5 {1 \over 2} = 33 \]

The surface area of the box is 33 in^{3}.
