This is too general. The following equation is for the volume of a square pyramid, where v= volume, l= length of the base, w= width of the base, and h= height of the pyramid:

v=(1/3)*l*w*h

In other words, volume=(one divided by three) times length times width times height

Volume is measured in "cubic" units. The volume of a figure is the number of cubes required to fill it completely, like blocks in a box. Sorry, but this answer is incorrect. the formula given is that of which for a rectangular pyramid. (learned this today in math )
