Find the volume of rectangular right wedge

A right wedge is a wedge with parallel side triangles. It have two side bases a and b, top edges e and height h. The task is to find the volume of the given rectangular right wedges.
RECTANGULAR RIGHT WEDGE

Examples:

Input: a = 2, b = 5, e = 5, h = 6
Output: Volume = 45.0



Input: a = 5, b = 4, e = 4, h = 6
Output: Volume = 56.0

Approach:
WEDGE
Va is the volume of triangular pyramid i.e. Va = (1 / 3) * area of triangle * (e – a)
Area of triangle = (1 / 2) * b * h
i.e Va = ( 1 / 3 ) * (( 1 / 2 ) * ( b * h * (e – a)))
Vb is a volume of triangular prism i.e. Vb = area of cross section * length(side)
i.e. Vb = (1 / 2) * (b * h * a)

Total Volume = Va + Vb
= (1 / 3) * ((1 / 2) * (b * h * ( e – a ))) + (1 / 2) * (b * h * a)
= (1 / 6) * (b * h * (e – a)) + (1 / 2) * (b * h * a)
= ((b * h) * (e – a) + 3 * b * h * a) / 6
= (b * h * e – b * h * a + 3 * b * h * a) / 6
= (b * h * e + 2 * b * h * a) / 6
= (b * h / 6) * (2 * a + e)

Volume of the rectangular right wedge = (b * h / 6) * (2 * a + e) where a and b are the side bases, e is the top edge and h is the height of the rectangular right wedge.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
