Same formula \(\text{Volume of rectangular pyramid} = \dfrac{1}{3} \times \text{Length} \times \text{Width} \times \text{Height}\) the base length is 2 ft the base width is 2 ft the height is 10 ft so what is the volume then?

umm 13 4/10

how

just multiply all the numbers and the denominator would be 3 since we're dividing by 3

well it gives me 13.3

it's 0.3333333 that never ends which is 1/3

so 13.3333 would be what as a fraction?

13 3/10

no 3/10 is 0.3 but 1/3 is 0.33333 that goes on forever

so then 13 4/10

HOW

wdym?

look \(\text{Volume of rectangular pyramid} = \dfrac{1}{3} \times \text{Length} \times \text{Width} \times \text{Height}\) the base length is 2 ft the base width is 2 ft the height is 10 ft what is 2 * 2 * 10

40

now 40 * 1/3 is going to be 40/3 do you agree?

ys

that's all now if you want it as a mixed number then whatever you get will have a DENOMINATOR of \(\large 3\)

ohhhhh ok
