## Decompose figures with side-length labels

Problem 2B
The figure below is made of 2 rectangular prisms.
What is the volume of this figure?
A shape made up of two rectangular prisms. The first rectangular prism has a base that measures 2 inches length by 6 inches width, and has a height of 5 inches. The second rectangular prism sits behind the first rectangular prism. It has a base that measures 8 inches length by 1 inch width and has a height of 5 inches.
