# Monkeys

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a series of volume word problems themed around monkeys. It includes a variety of monkey-related items such as a piggy bank, an exercise cube, a ball, a banana crate, and more, each designed as geometric shapes. Students are given the dimensions of these items and are asked to calculate the volume of each object in cubic inches or feet, using the appropriate mathematical formulas for cylinders, spheres, and rectangular prisms.

The worksheet aims to teach students how to determine the volume of different shapes by applying the correct geometric volume formulas. It is designed to improve their understanding of how to calculate the space that various objects occupy. The monkey theme adds a playful element to engage students and make the learning process more enjoyable. This exercise not only reinforces their knowledge of geometry but also enhances their problem-solving skills by translating real-world objects into mathematical problems.

**Example Problems**

1. A monkey-shaped piggy bank is shaped like a cylindrical body with a radius of 4 inches and a height of 10 inches. Calculate the volume of coins it can hold in cubic inches.

2. A monkey enclosure at the zoo is designed as a rectangular prism with dimensions 20 feet by 15 feet by 12 feet. Determine the volume of the enclosure in cubic feet.

3. A monkey’s toy ball is shaped like a spherical object with a diameter of 6 inches. Calculate the volume of the toy ball in cubic inches.

4. A monkey’s banana crate is a rectangular prism with dimensions 14 inches by 8 inches by 6 inches. Determine the volume of bananas it can hold in cubic inches.

5. A monkey hammock is designed as a rectangular sling with dimensions 12 feet by 4 feet by 2 feet. Calculate the volume of space it occupies in cubic feet.

6. A monkey-themed birthday cake is shaped like a rectangular prism with dimensions 16 inches by 10 inches by 4 inches. Determine the volume of cake in cubic inches.

7. A monkey jungle gym is constructed as a cylindrical tower with a radius of 3 feet and a height of 15 feet. Calculate the volume of the jungle gym in cubic feet.
