Volume of Pyramid A:

12(base) x 8(height) = 96

96 divided by 3 ( x 1/3) = 32

Step-by-step explanation:

Volume of Pyramid A:

12(base) x 8(height) = 96

96 divided by 3 ( x 1/3) = 32

Volume of Pyramid B:

48(base) x 32(height) = 1,536

1,536 divided by 3 ( x 1/3) = 512

512 – 32 = 480 many times bigger.

If you are going to solve this you first need to know the formula volume of a pyramid,

It is your area on the bottom (base) x height x 1/3 (basically just dividing by 3).

In pyramid A, in this case our base is 12 and our height is 8 so we multiply them and divide by 3 since that is the formula of finding the volume.
