## Prove that volume of a pyramid is 1/3 the volume of cube

Proof of the Formula
Let us assume that length of cube is then the length of pyramid is l and height of pyramid is
Now,
Volume of Cube = Volume of 6 pyramids
Base area x height = 6 x Volume of Pyramid
or volume of each pyramid= x Base area x
or volume of each pyramid = x base area x
or volume of each pyramid = x Base area x height of pyramid
(Cube र pyramid को base area एउटै छ )
