Hands-on math!


A pyramid is a 3-dimensional (solid) figure that has a polygon for a base and has a single vertex at the top, called the apex.

The bottom polygon is called the base.
The sides of a pyramid are all triangles.
The Egyptian pyramids have square bases and triangular sides, meeting at the top, the apex.

The volume of a pyramid with a rectangular base L long and W wide and H high is:
V = L W H / 3

Now, here is a problem for you:
What is the volume of this pyramid?
Measurements are in cm.

Volume = ______ cu. cm.
