A pyramid has a base and triangular sides which rise to meet at the same point. The base may be any polygon such as a square, rectangle, triangle, etc. The general formula for the volume of a pyramid is:

Vol = 1/3 * l² * h




Examples:

A pyramid has a square base of side 4 cm and a height of 9 cm. Find its volume.

Vol = 1/3 * l² * h
Vol = 1/3 * 4² * 9
Vol = 48 cm³
