The pyramid is composed of a square base of area 16 and four isoceles triangles,in which each base angle measures 60 degree.What is the volume of the pyramid?

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:

As base angle of isosceles triangle is 60°, hence third angle will also be 60°, hence triangle will be equilateral. We know thatVolume of pyramid=13a2hwhere a is length of base and h is height of pyramid and h=a2V=13a2.a2=a332NoArea of square base=16a2=16 a=4V=4332=6432=3223 unit3
