# Program to calculate volume of Octahedron

Given the side of the Octahedron then calculate the volume of Octahedron.

Examples:

Input : 3 Output : 12.7279 Input : 7 Output : 161.692

A regular Octahedron has eight faces,twelve edges and six vertices. It has eight triangles with edges of equal length and effectively two square pyramids meeting at their bases.

Properties of Octahedron:

Number of faces: 8

Number of edges: 12

Number of vertices: 6Volume = √2/3 × awhere a is the side of Octahedron^{3}
