Question

# [Pic of triangle] Find the volume of the pyramid. Write your answer as a fraction or mixed number.

Solid Geometry
The volume of a pyramid is $$\displaystyle{V}={\frac{{{1}}}{{{3}}}}{B}{h}$$ where B is the area of the base and hh is the height of the pyramid.
From the figure, the height of the pyramid is h=2 ft. The volume is then $$\displaystyle{V}={\frac{{{1}}}{{{3}}}}{B}{h}={\frac{{{1}}}{{{3}}}}{\left({2}\right)}{\left({2}\right)}={\frac{{{4}}}{{{3}}}}={1}{\frac{{{1}}}{{{3}}}}{f}{t}^{{{3}}}$$
