Volume of Pyramids - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

The formula for the volume of prisms can also be applied to the volume of pyramids, which occupy only one third of the space of a corresponding prism with the same base and height. To calculate the volume of a pyramid, we simply multiply the area of the one of the bases times one third of the height of the pyramid. This formula is very similar to volume of cylinder and volume of cone formulas.
