Hint: what's the formula for the volume of a pyramid? (you don't really need it, but it makes things easier)

Area of the base * Height * 1/3

OK, let's say the base of the smaller pyramid is a square with side length 's'. Now, what is the volume in terms of 's'?

OK, good. If the smaller pyramid's base has a side length of s, it's a square with side s. A square with side 's' has what area?
