Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The volume of a square pyramid is V = (1/3)Ah where A = area of base and h = height For a pyramid with base area A and height h, V = (1/3)Ah If you now substitute h with h/3, you get V = (1/3)(Ah/3) = (1/9)Ah (1/9)Ah is onethird of (1/3)Ah

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1original volume of pyramid = 1/3 x A x h nw the height is 1/3rd of original volume = 1/3 x A x h/3 =(1/3 x A x h)/3 = original volume/3
