the base of a rectangular prism is congruent to the base of a pyramid. The height of the pyramid is 3 times the height of the prism. Which figure has a greater volume? Explain.

I'm terrible with these kind of word problems. If you could explain that would be great.

    can someone please help me!?!

  • math -

    ht. of rectangle = h.

    ht. of pyramid = 3h.

    Vr = Ab*h = Volume of rectangle.

    Vp = Ab*3h/3,
    The "3s" cancel.
    Therefore, Vp = Vr = Ab*h.

    Based on the dimensions given,the
    volume of the rectangle is equal to
    the volume of the pyramid.

    Ab*h = Volume of pyramid

    A rectangular prism has a base of 12cm2 and a height of 6 cm what is its volume
