# What is the volume of a square pyramid with a base length of 4 cm and a height of 9 cm?

**Solution: **

Given: The base(b) of the square pyramid as 4 cm and height(h) of the square pyramid as 9 cm

A square pyramid is a type of pyramid with a square-shaped base and 4 triangular faces which meet each other at a vertex.

The volume of the square pyramid is given by = 1/3(b)^{2}h

⇒ volume = 1/3 (4)^{2}(9)

⇒ volume = 1/3 (16)(9)

⇒ volume = (16)(3)

⇒ volume = 48 cm^{3}

Therefore, the volume of square pyramid is 48 cm^{3}.

## What is the volume of a square pyramid with a base length of 4 cm and a height of 9 cm?

**Summary: **

The volume of the square pyramid with base length of 4 cm and height of 9 cm is 48 cm^{3}.
