# Volumne of a Pyramid

How to find the volume of a pyramid: formula, examples, and their solutions.

## Formula

*V* = (1/3)*Bh**V*: volume of a pyramid*B*: base area*h*: height of the pyramid

## Example 1

To use the formula,

find *B* and *h*.*B* = 7⋅4 = 28

Area of a rectangle*h* = 9

*B* = 28, *h* = 9*V* = (1/3)⋅28⋅9

## Example 2

To use the formula,

find *B* and *h*.*B* = (1/2)⋅9⋅8 = 36

Area of a triangle*h* = 10

*B* = 36, *h* = 10*V* = (1/3)⋅36⋅10
