            LOOK UP THE FORMULA'S and then just PLUG IN!
            FORMULA's
            Area of a Triangle  =   1/2*b*h
            Area of a Square/Rectangle  =  side * side
            Area of a Parallelogram  =  b * h  (those two dimension are connected to the right angle.
            Volume of a Rectangular Prism  =  l * h * w
            Volume of a Triangle Prism  =  (Area of the base 1/2 * b * h) then times by the height.
            Volume of a cylinder  =  (area of the base Pi * r (squared) then times by the height.
            Volume of a pyramid  =  l * h * w then you divide that by 3
            Volume of a cone  =  1/3 * h * Pi * r (squared)
            Volume of a sphere  =  4/3 * Pi * r (cubed)
