Step by Step Solution

Step 1

The picture below shows the pyramid the width of 2cm, length of 4cm and height of 6cm.

Step 2

To calculate the volume, we will use the formula for the volume of a pyramid. W, l and h are the width, length and height of the pyramid respectively.

Step 3

Since the values for w, l and h are given, we can substitute w with 2, l with 4 and h with 6. After substituting these values, we can calculate for V as shown below:

Step 4

Now, the calculated number 16 only has a meaning if we include the unit for it. Since the given units are in cm, the unit for volume will be cm^{3}. Hence:
