A cone is a common pyramid-like figure where the base is a circle or other closed curve instead of a polygon. A cone has a curved lateral surface instead of several triangular faces, but in terms of volume, a cone and a pyramid are just alike.

The formula for a pyramid. The volume of a pyramid is (1/3)(B)(h). The volume of a cone is essentially the same: (1/3)(B=πr2)(h)

Vol = 1/3 * base area x vertical height for any pyramid (or cone).

How about a cone or maybe a pyramid

The volume of the pyramid and cone is one third the volume of the corresponding (ie same [size] base and height) prism and cylinder.

A star, cone, pyramid.

How about a cone or a pyramid

We did and the volume of a pyramid and a cone is 1/3*base area*perpendicular height given in cubic units.

You don't.

The volume of a cone is exactly equal to one third the volume of a cylinder of equal height and radius. The volume of a cylinder is equal to πr2h, so the volume of a cone is πr2h/3

Cone: (1/3) * Pi * Radius² * Height Pyramid: (1/3) * (Base Area) * Height

Cone or a pyramid

Wouldn't a circle-based pyramid look a lot like a cone ? If so, you could probably use the formula for the volume of a cone and get away with it.

Because the formula is the same: volume = 1/3base areaheight

a cone looks like an ice cream cone and a cylinder has 2 circles (one on each side) figure it out

Well most of the time there is nothing such as the volume of a triangle but there is cone and pyramid... Cone is 1/3 x pi x radius squared x height Pyramid 1/3 x area of base x height I think...

The given description fits that of a cone shape.

Volume of a cone = 1/3*pi*radius2*height measured in cubic units

A cone and a pyramid both have an apex.

no, it's a pyramid

A cone has a round bottom, and the pyramid has a squarish bottom.

A cone has 1 face a pyramid has 4 faces.

The relationship between the formulas is that in all the radius is cubed.

The volume is equal to 1/3 times the base area times the height. Incidentally, that's the same formula for the pyramid.
