A pyramid with a square base has a volume of 125 cubic feet and a height (h) of 15 feet, as shown in the figure.

What is the area of the pyramid’s square base?

25 square feet

Explanation

The volume of a pyramid with a square base \(\frac{1}{3}\mathrm{e}^{2 } \times \text {height}\)

Given a volume of 125 and height of 15, here is how you can solve for \(\mathrm{e}^{2}\):
\(125= \frac{1}{3}\mathrm{e}^{2 } \times 15\)
\(375=15 \mathrm{e}^{2}\)
\(25=e^{2}\)
