# Find the height of a square pyramid that has a volume of 8 cubic feet and a base length of 2 feet?

6 feet., 16 feet., 12 feet., 4 feet.

**Solution:**

The volume of a pyramid refers to the space enclosed between its faces.

A square pyramid can be called a pentahedron because it has five faces: four triangular faces and one square face.

Given base length a = 2 feet

Given volume = 8 cubic feet

But volume of a square pyramid with base a units and height h units is

Volume v = 1/3a^{2}h

On replacing the given a and V values

8 = 1/3 × 2^{2 }× h

⇒ 8 = 4 h /3

On dividing both the sides by 4

⇒ h = 6 feet

## Find the height of a square pyramid that has a volume of 8 cubic feet and a base length of 2 feet?

**Summary:**

The height of a square pyramid that has a volume of 8 cubic feet and a base length of 2 is 6 feet.
