**Calculate the Volume of a Pyramid**

A Pyramid is a geometric solid with one base that is a polygon and all other faces are triangles with a common vertex. Basically a pyramid is a polyhedron formed by connecting a polygonal base and a point, called the apex. When calculating volume, any shape in 3 dimensions in which a single base can be identified and a single peak exists non-planer to the base, the pyramidal rule applies. The volume of any pyramidal shape is 1/3 of the product of the base area and the length of the altitude of the peak above the plane of the base.

**Method #2 – Volume of a Pyramid Formula**

The volume of a Pyramid can be calculated by using the formula:

In this formula, 1/3 represents one-third, B represents the area of the base, and h represents the height of pyramid.
