Geometry Tutorials: How to calculate the Volume (V) of a Pyramid
Calculating the volume of a Pyramid may sound difficult, but in reality it is a piece of cake. Indeed, using the base width, base height and triangle height we can calculate the volume of a Pyramid in no time.
The key here is that these three variables can be used to calculate the volume of a rectangular solid. You are probably thinking what on earth we would want a rectangular solid for. Well, if you divide the rectangular solid by three, you will have the exact volume of a triangle. Here is the formula, b stand for base, as in base height time width:
V = bh ÷ 3
So the Volume (V) of a triangle equals base area times triangle height divided by 3. Or 1/3 times base area times triangle hide.
