# How Much Volume will be Reduce? If

If the base of right prism remains same and the measures of the lateral edges are halved, then is volume will be reduced by:

- 50%
- 25%
- 66%
- 33.33%

**Answer: (1) 50%**

**Explanation:-**

The volume of prism = base area x height

=A x h

Where, A = area and h = height of prism

According to the question,

The volume of new prism = A x h/2

The percentage of decrease in volume = (Ah – Ah/2) x 100/Ah

= 1x 100/2 = 50%

Hence, the answer is (1) 50%.
