Step 1

1 of 4a. Determine the volume of the pyramid using the given dimensions.

$\begin {aligned} V & = \dfrac{1}{3} Bh \\ V & = \dfrac{1}{3} \left(756 \text { ft} \cdot 756\text{ ft}\right) \left(480\text{ ft}\right) \\ V & = \dfrac{1}{3} \left(274,337,280 \text{ ft}^{3} \right) \\ V & = 91,445,760 \text{ ft}^{3} \end {aligned}$
