Since a cylindrical hole is drilled into the prism, the remaining volume, V will be the entire volume of the prism, V1 minus the volume of the drilled cylindrical shape, V2. That is,

V = V1 + V2

Where V1 and V2 are the volumes of the prism and cylinder respectively.

V1 = Length x Width x Height

V1 = 4 x 6 x 4

V1 = 96

V= πr2h

Where r is the radius and h is the height

V= π(1)2(6)

V= 19

Thus, V = 96 - 19

= 77

Ans 2
