Suppose each edge of a cube is 7.8 cm long. Which is the BEST estimate for the volume of the cube?

They must have given you a list of choices.

One estimate could be 8*8*8 = 64*8 = 480+32 = 512

Refer to your reference sheet, and you should see that volume of a cube (also known as a square prism) V=bwh. In the case of a cube, all side are the same. Thus, b=7.8, w=7.8, h=7.8.

V=7.8 x 7.8 x 7.8 = 474.552 cm
