    Well the volume is just the area of the base times height.

    well how would you find it ? multiplying length and width?

    hmm no.. area of triangle = 1/2 *base *height,

    yes i think so.. vol of pyramid = 1/3 * area of base * height of pyramid.

    i am not sure if 4 is the height as the diagram is very much titlted.

    well what would you think it is? because i can always try it and see if its right or wrong. it gives me another chance. but would it be 32 sqrt 3?

    hmm then we made some mistake earlier.. i think probably should be height or the area of base.
