A rectangular pyramid has the same height and base of a rectangular container where volume is 300 m^3 (cubic meter). what is the volume of that rectangular pyramid?

Since a pyramid has a volume 1/3 of that of a cube having the same base and height as the pyramid, the volume of the pyramid must be
(1/3)(300)
or 100 m^3
