with height of 148 m and a square base with a perimeter

of 940 m. The Transamerica Building in San Francisco

has the basic shape of a right square pyramid that has a

square base with a perimeter of 140 m and a height of

260 m. Which one has the greater volume and by how

many times as great?

**drwls**, Friday, September 3, 2010 at 5:22amVolume = (1/3)*(P/4)^2*H = (1/48)P^2*H

where P is the perimeter and H is the height.

V(Cheops)/V(Transamerica)

= (148/260)*(940/140)^2

= 25.7
