# Suppose that the base of the square pyramid in Exercise 5 has an area of 16 c m 2 and that the altitude of the pyramid measures 6 c m . Find the volume of the square pyramid. To determine

To find:

The volume of the given pyramid.

Explanation

Given:

The figure given below

and the base of the square pyramid has an area of 16cm2 and the altitude of the pyramid measures 6cm.

Formula Used:

The altitude/height of the pyramid is the line segment from the vertex perpendicular to the plane of the base.

The volume V of a pyramid having a base area B and an altitude of length h is given by

V=13Bh.

Calculation:

From the given figure
