# A square base

A solid right pyramid has a square base. The length of the base edge is 4 centimeters and the height of the pyramid is 3 centimeters. What is the volume of the pyramid?

Result

V =  16 cm3

#### Solution:

$a=4 \ \text{cm} \ \\ h=3 \ \text{cm} \ \\ \ \\ S_{1}=a^2=4^2=16 \ \text{cm}^2 \ \\ \ \\ V=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 3 } \cdot \ S_{1} \cdot \ h=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 3 } \cdot \ 16 \cdot \ 3=16 \ \text{cm}^3$ Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves.
