Finding the Volume of a Pyramid
The Volume of a Pyramid is one third the area of the
base times the height.
The Volume of a Pyramid
1/3 × [Base Area] × Height
Example: Find the volume of the square pyramid
Formula is 1/3 area of the base time height.
step1: Find area of the base. area = length x width
The area is 3cm * 3cm = 6 cm ( the area)
Step2: multiply 1/3 by 6 cm = 3
Step3: Find the height. The height is 5 cm
Step4: multiply 3 cm x 5 c m = 15 cm
volume is 15 or v = 15
Note: They are call Square Pyramids, because their base is a
