Thomas needs help with his fish tank! He wants to add a large decoration that will serve as a home for the fish in the tank. The decoration is a right solid cylinder with a hole through the middle in the shape of a right square prism. Thomas wants to make sure that the water in the tank won't overflow when he adds the decoration. Geometers use volume formulas for cylinders and prisms in this real-world problem that requires them to consider different interpretations of how the information is presented.
