## Basic definition and general information about the Pyramid

A pyramid is a three-dimensional solid geometric figure that usually has a square or triangular base and sloping sides that meet in a point. The highest point where all the sides meet together is referred to as the apex. The following formula is used to calculate the volume of a square pyramid:

• (Area of Base ÷ 3) x Height [ It is crucial to understand that the base is in the form of a square, thus, the area is represented by the length of one side squared - L2 ]
