Pyramid volume = 1/3 lwh l and w are the same (48) because it is a square base

find h via Pythagorean theorem where c (hypotenuse ) is the slant height and one leg is h and the other leg is 1/2 of the base( = 24)

26^{2} = h^{2} +24^{2 }solve for h to use in the red equation for volume (above)

Answer will be in units cm^{3}
