The formula for measuring the volume is,  l x b x h, where l stands for length, b stands for breadth and  h stands for height.

So, the voume of the hallway is 10 x 35 x 4 =  1400 cubic feet

V=lwh

V=(35)(4)(10)

V=1400 ft³

volume= length * breadth * height

= 35*4*10

= 1400 cubic foot

the volume formula for a rectangular prism is  length x width x height

35 x 4 x 10 = 1400

volume = 1400 ft

To find the volume, you'd have to use the equation b*h*w=v
where
b=base
h=height 
w=width
 
so 
v= 10*35*4
v= 1400

For this you would use the volume equation 

Which is l x w x h 

Since the walls are 10 ft by 35 ft by 4 ft, multiply it all together

10 x 35 x 4 = 1440 Therefore the volume is equal to 1440 cubic feet
