  # Identify Formulae for Lengths, Areas and Volumes

In this worksheet, students will decide whether a given formula is one-dimensional, two-dimensional or three-dimensional. Key stage:  KS 3

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

By analysing the dimensions to the right of the equals sign, we can say whether a formula could be for length, area or volume.

A formula for length can only be one-dimensional.

This means that lengths occur on their own e.g. C = 3d or P = a + 2b

A formula for area can only be two-dimensional.

This means that lengths occur in pairs e.g. A = 3ab or A = a2 + 2ab

A formula for volume can only be three-dimensional.

This means that lengths occur in threes e.g. C = 5d3 or P = abc + 2a2b

Let's have a go at some questions.
