...multiply in finding the volume of the cylinder? 24. The number of cubic units in a cylinder is equal to **the product of the number of square units in the base and the number of linear units in the altitude,** when expressed in the same unit. In general usage it is customary to say that the base multiplied by... | |

...rectangular prism. From this we may infer that, The number of cubic unitsin any cylinder is equal to **the product of the number of square units in the base and the number of linear units in the altitude.** This is shown in geometry to be the true volume. 147. The surface of a cylinder. — By taking a piece... | |
