Rectangle ABCD is the base of pyramid PABCD. If AB=8, BC=4, PA perpendicular to AD, PA perpendicular to AB, and PB=15. Then what is the volume of PABCD?

Hello Guest!

 

\(h=\overline {PA} =\sqrt{15^2-8^2}\)

\(h=\sqrt{161}\)

\(V=\frac{1}{3}\cdot \overline {AB}\cdot \overline {BC}\cdot h=\frac{1}{3}\cdot 8\cdot 4\cdot \sqrt{161}\)

\({\color{blue}V=10.\overline 6\cdot\sqrt{161}}\approx135.345\)
