Question

Allysa is making a square-based pyramid for an Egyptian Studies project. If the square base measures 2 feet on each side and the height is 1.5 feet, how many cubic feet of clay will she need to create a solid pyramid

1. Allysa will need 2 cubic feet of clay to create a square pyramid with a base that is 2 feet wide and a 1.5-foot height.

### What is volume of pyramid?

A pyramid’s volume can be calculated using the formula V = (1/3) Bh, where “B” stands for the base area and “h” for the height of the pyramid. We can use the formulas for the area of polygons to calculate “B” because we know that any polygon can serve as a pyramid’s base.

### According to the given information:

Length of the base = 2 feet
width of the base = 2 feet
Height of the pyramid = 1.5 feer
volume of the pyramid = length * width * height/3
=  2 * 2* 1.5 /3
= 4 *0.5
the volume of the pyramid  = 2 cubic feet
Allysa will need 2 cubic feet of clay to create a square pyramid with a base that is 2 feet wide and a 1.5-foot height.
