96 Step-by-step explanation:

To determine how much additional wax was needed to make the taller candle, we determine the volume of each of the candles and find the difference in their volumes

First Candle

• Height=12cm
• Length=4 cm
• Width= 6 cm

Volume=Height X Length X Width

=12 X 4 X 6

=288 Second Candle

The second candle is 4cm higher

• Height=12+4=16cm
• Length=4 cm
• Width= 6 cm

Volume=Height X Length X Width

=16 X 4 X 6

=384 Difference in Volume = 384-288 =96 Therefore, 96 of additional wax was used to make the second candle.
