    Answer:

    96cm^3

    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

    =288cm^3

    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

    =384cm^3

    Difference in Volume = 384-288 =96cm^3

    Therefore, 96cm^3 of additional wax was used to make the second candle.
