1). A square pyramid has a volume of 560 in to the third power, a base length of 10 in., and a height of 14 in. What is its base width?
2). h + p = 3(k8)

My textbook states that the formula v = 1/3lwh relates the volume of a square pyramid to its base length l, width w, and height h. However, I am uncertain whether this information applies to this equation or not.

Reiny,
1.
of course it does
I noticed Ms Sue helped you with this already.

Why did you not follow her suggestion??
But more important:
You are told the base is a square,
if the length is 10
wouldn't the width be 10 also ??
checking:
(1/3)(10)(10)(14) = (1/3)(1400) ≠ 560^3
So your question has false data and is bogus.
2. what do you want done with this equation?

2). I suppose I am supposed to solve it.
