Answer

$V=705.18$ cm$^3$

Work Step by Step

Knowing the altitude of the pyramid, we can multiply it by the area of its base (acquired in part A), and one third in the equation: Volume of a Pyramid $= \frac{1}{3}Bh$ Altitude: $14.6$ cm Area of base (B): $144.9 $ cm$^2$ $V=\frac{1}{3}(144.9)(14.6)$ $V=705.18$ cm$^3$
