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

The volume is equal to 1/3 times the base area times the height. Incidentally, that's the same formula for the pyramid.

You require a lot more information before the question can be answered. First, you do not solve a pyramid. A pyramid is a 3-dimensional shape - it is there. You do not solve it. You can Solve for its surface area, or its base area or its height or something. But the question does not say what you are trying to solve for. Second. You do not specify whether it is a triangular pyramid, a quadrilateral one, pentagonal or so on. If the question were about the base area, that would not matter, but if it is about anything else, that piece of information is critical. So I suggest you think about what information you do have and what you want to find out and then resubmit a sensible question that someone can answer.

The volume for any pyramid = 1/3*base area*perpendicular height

No pyramid can have a volume of 3600 cm since that is a measure of distance: volume is measured in cubic units.No pyramid can have a volume of 3600 cm since that is a measure of distance: volume is measured in cubic units.No pyramid can have a volume of 3600 cm since that is a measure of distance: volume is measured in cubic units.No pyramid can have a volume of 3600 cm since that is a measure of distance: volume is measured in cubic units.

v= 1/2 * length * height * width Pyramid SolidSolving for volume:

formula of the volume of a prism = (base area)(height) formula of the volume of a pyramid = (1/3)(base area)(height) therefore, to convert the volume of a prism to that of a pyramid, just divide it by 3

I need the dimensions of the pyramid to be able to answer this question.

Because the volume of a pyramid is 1/3 times base area times height

The formula for finding the volume for a triangular pyramid is half base x height x length. A triangular pyramid has four faces.

density = mass / volume Solving for mass: mass = density x volume Solving for volume: volume = mass / density

It depends on if the item is a cylinder, block, or pyramid. You would replace the appropriate geometric equation variables and solve for the unknown algebraically.
