The density triangle is a trick that will tell which formula to use in order to find the density, mass, or volume when you have the other two.The density triangle is a triangle that is split into three sections.
Write the letters D, M, and V in the triangle in the order that you reach each section as you go from left to right. The diagram below will show you how this is done.
