A pyramid is a polyhedron with one base that is any polygon. The volume of a 3 -dimensional solid is the amount of space it occupies. Here is how to find the volume of a rectangular pyramid.

The volume V of a pyramid is one-third the area of the base * times the height h**. *

## Steps

**Find the length and width of the base.**

For Example: l = 4cm, w = 3cm**Multiply the length and width to find the area of the base.**

**Multiply the area of the base by the height.**

For Example,**Multiply your result so far by 1/3.**
