If the base area of the shown solid is 1970 square centimeters, determine, to the nearest tenth, its volume.
00:00:12.840 --> 00:00:21.460
The volume of any pyramid is calculated using the formula one- third multiplied by the base area multiplied by the height.
00:00:22.640 --> 00:00:31.350
In this case, the base area is 1970 and the height of the pyramid is 25 centimeters.
00:00:32.720 --> 00:00:40.510
This means that we can work out the volume by multiplying one-third by 1970 by 25.
00:00:42.090 --> 00:00:49.600
Typing this into the calculator gives us an answer of 16416.666.
00:00:51.070 --> 00:01:01.770
However, as we were asked to calculate the volume to the nearest tenth, our answer is 16416.7 cubic centimeters.
00:01:03.030 --> 00:01:18.040
Therefore, a pyramid with base area 1970 square centimeters and height 25 centimeters will have a volume of 16416.7 cubic centimeters.
