    Sure, do you know that volume is area of the base times height?

    Do you know how to get the area of a triangle?

    If algebra is right, \(7 \sqrt{3} \; m^3 \)should be the answer.

    Yes, I got 12.12, which is the same. Because you use hypothagorous theroem....

    perpendicular is sqrt 3... if you ll multiply it with 7 then it'll give area of plane?

    And what I thought before I got confused. @waqassaddique I think you got confused with a pyramid and a triangular prism.

    It's that answer because the area of the base is the square root of 3 and 7 is the height.
