You have to find out the area of the base which you find out with perpendicular height times base then time that by the perpendicular height of the pyramid and divide it by 3

A triangular based pyramid is a tetrahedron which has 4 faces, 6 edges and 4 vertices

"triangular" is an adjective - it is not enough to define a shape. You can have a triangular pyramid or a triangular prism and there will be different methods to calculate their volumes.

Volume = 1/3 height of pyramid multiplied by the area of the triangular base. V = 1/3 h * area of base.

To find the perpendicular height of a square pyramid, first compute for the volume of the pyramid. Then divide the volume by the area of the base to find pyramid's height.

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:Area of the base * Height * 1/3 The volume of a pyramid with a rectangular base is equal to: Length_of_base * Width_of_base * Height * 1/3

Wouldn't a circle-based pyramid look a lot like a cone ? If so, you could probably use the formula for the volume of a cone and get away with it.

You have to find out the area of the base which you find out with perpendicular height times base then time that by the perpendicular height of the pyramid and divide it by 3

A triangular based pyramid has four side which are all triangular and it is correctly called a "Tetrahedron". If you search for this word on Google Images or elsewhere you will find many pictures and diagrams.

Volume of a squared based pyramid: 1/3*base area*height

A pyramid is any three-dimensional polyhedron where the faces other than the base are triangular and converge at one point, called the apex. The formula for finding the volume of a pyramid is . There are some tutorials at the related link below that can help you figure out how to use this formula.

first you find the area of the base and then you find the area one side of the pyramid an you time it with 3 if it is a triangular pyramid or 4 if it is a square pyramid

The formula for a triangle-base pyramid (a form of tetrahedron) isV = 1/3 Bh where B is the area of the triangular baseFind the area of the base by the formula B = 1/2 bh (height of that triangle), then multiply by 1/3 of the pyramid'sheight.

Capacity generally implies volume in geometry. To calculate the volume of a triangular prism, find the area of one of its triangular bases and multiply it by the height of the shape.

The base of a square pyramid is the only face that is a square - all the others are triangular in shape. So you do not need any measurements to determine which is the base.

Surface area of any pyramid is 1/2Pl + B; where P=perimeter of the base, l=slant height and B= Area of the base.

If its a triangular based pyramid (tetrahedron) then it will have 4 equilateral triangle faces and so find the area of one face and multiply it by 4 to give the total surface area.

You find the volume of a triangular prism by using this formula: Volume = 1/2 base of the triangle x height of the triangle x height of the prism.

Like all prisms you find the area of one of the triangular faces and then multiply by the height.

Find the area of a triangular section, 1/2bh, and then multiply by the length of the prism.

"Rectangular" and "triangle" are words that refer to shapes in 2-dimensions - ie plane shapes. Although they can be used to describe 3-dimensional shapes, it can give rise to ambiguity. In this case, it is not clear whether you mean a triangular prism or a rectangle based pyramid. The triangular prism is the more likely shape. In that case, the volume is the cross section area of the triangle times the length of the prism.
