Composite Solids: Lesson

This Composite Solids: Lesson video also includes:

Combine the formulas to arrive at one volume. Using the formulas for different solids, the video introduces finding the volume of composite solids. The portion of an extensive playlist on geometry works a couple of problems, one with an additive process and one with a subtractive process.
