The formula for volume of a pyramid is:

$$V = \frac{1}{3}BH$$

Where B is the area of the base and H is the height.

The base is just a square with side length 723 ft, so the area of the base is just 7232 = 522,729 sq. ft.

The height is 341 ft.

B = 522,729

H = 341

Literally just plug this into the formula to get the answer.
