First convert the mixed number into a improper fraction, then do length × width × hight. After covert your improper fraction back into a mixed number.

Same way you do when the sides are integers. Example: 1 1/2 x 2 4/5 x 3 2/3  Step 1: First you turn the mixed numbers into improper fractions. (An easy way to do that is multiply the denominator by the whole number + the numerator.) 3/2 x 14/5 x 11/3 Step 2: Then you multiply the numerators. 3 x 14 x 11 = 462 Step 3: Then you multiply the denominators. 2 x 5 x 3 = 30 Step 4: Divide the numerator by the denominator 462/30 = 15 1/5
