volume of pyramid  =  (1/3)(area of base)(height)

area of square base  =  751 * 751  ft2   =   564001  ft2       Plug this in for  area of base.

Plug in the height given in the problem.

volume of pyramid  =  (1/3)(564001 ft2)(481 ft)                   Multiply these together.

volume of pyramid  ≈  90 428 160   ft3

And    90 428 160   ≈   9.0 * 107
