Q:
# A solid right pyramid has a square base with an edge length of x cm and a height of y cm. Which expression represents the volume of the pyramid? xy cm3 x2y cm3 xy2 cm3 x2y cm3

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Thus, volume of pyramid = [tex]\frac{1}{3}x^2y[/tex] cm³Step-by-step explanation:Given: A solid right pyramid has a square base with an edge length of x cm and a height of y cm.We have to choose from the given options an expression for the volume of the pyramid.Volume of pyramid = [tex]\frac{1}{3}\times Area\ of\ base \times height[/tex]Since base is a square with edge length x cm.Area of square = (side)² = x²Thus, volume of pyramid = [tex]\frac{1}{3}x^2y[/tex] cm³
