    That's not a square pyramid.

    Anyway, if the question said "Find the volume of a RECTANGULAR pyramid..." then we would do this. The area of a rectangular pyramid is modeled by the equation...\[A=\frac{1}{3}A_{base}h\]\[A=\frac{1}{3}[(7yd)(9yd)](7yd)=\frac{441}{3}yd^3=147yd^3\]

    I need the volume not the area

    Sorry. Those equations are for the volume. I just mistakenly put "A" everywhere. The volume is 147yd^3. Just replace the A's on the left side of the equation with V's.
