The formula for the volume of a pyramid is  V  =  (1/3)·(Area of the Base)·(Height)

 

Since the base of the pyramid is a square, 240 meters on each side, the area of the base is:

   A  =  240 m x 240 m  =  57,600 square meters

 

The volume of the pyramid is:  V  =  (1/3)·(57,600 m2)·(147 m)  =  2,822,400 m3.
