  1. Calculate the volume of a square pyramid, if the side of a base is 3 cm and height of a pyramid is 6 cm.


    Step 1 :  

    Given:


    base (b) = 3 cm.


    height (h) = 6 cm.


    Volume of a square pyramid = ?


    Formula:


    Volume of a square pyramid = (b2 * h) / 3.



    Step 2 :  

    Put the values in a formula,


    Volume of a square pyramid = ( 3 cm)2 * 6 cm / 3.


    Volume of a square pyramid = 9 cm2 * 6 cm / 3.


    Volume of a square pyramid = 54 cm3/ 3.



    Answer  :  

    Volume of a square pyramid = 18 cm3.



  2. Calculate the volume of a square pyramid, if the side of a base is 5 cm and height of a pyramid is 9 cm.


    Step 1 :  

    Given:


    base (b) = 5 cm.


    height (h) = 9 cm.


    Volume of a square pyramid = ?


    Formula:


    Volume of a square pyramid = (b2 * h) / 3.



    Step 2 :  

    Put the values in a formula,


    Volume of a square pyramid = (5 cm)2 * 9 cm / 3.


    Volume of a square pyramid = 25 cm2 * 9 cm / 3.


    Volume of a square pyramid = 225 cm3 / 3.



    Answer  :  

    Volume of a square pyramid = 75 cm3.
