Length is 8 meters.The base is 6 meters.My answer is 4 meters.It that correct?-Your notation is very confusing. I think you mean the height of the triangle at the base is 1.......

Calculate the volume of the triangle prism forming the roof in m3.

The height of the triangle is 1.5. Length is 8 meters. The base is 6 meters.

My answer is 4 meters. It that correct?

Your notation is very confusing. I think you mean the height of the triangle at the base is 1.5 meters, and its length is 6 meters, so the area of the base triangle is 1/2*1.5*6 = 4.5 square meters. If the length of the prism from top to bottom is 8 meters, the overall volume is then 8*4.5 = 36 m^3.

It turns out that the formula for the volume of a triangular prism with base triangle length L, base triangle height B, and length from top to bottom H is just
1/2*BLH,

so even if I've misinterpreted which one you meant should go where, the answer will come out the same regardless.
