The Great Pryamid of Cheops has a square base of 771ft. on a side and a height of 4186ft. How many rooms 35ft x 20ft x 8ft would be needed to have a volume equivalent to that of the Great Pryamid?

b = area of base
V = (bh)/3
V = (594,441 * 4,186)/3
V = 829,443,342 cubic feet in the pyramid
Divide the total cubic feet by the volume of a room to get the number of rooms
