### How do you work out a square prism width and height when given volume and length?

Volume = Length x Width x Height.
If the prism is square, then
either Height = Width
or Height = Length
In the first case,
Volume = Length x Width2 and so Width = sqrt(Volume/Length) and
Height = Width.
In the second case,
Volume = Length2 x Width and so Width = Volume/Length2 and
Height = Length.
