The equation V=1/3 Bh gives the volume V of a pyramid, where B is the area of the base and h is the height. Solve this equation for B.

• Math -

Multiply both by 3 and divide both sides by h.

• Math -

V = 1/3Bh
3(V)=Bh (multiply both side by 3 to cancel fraction)
3V/h=Bh/h (divide both by h to get rid of h)
3V/h=B
B=3V/h
