# Program for volume of Pyramid

A pyramid is a 3-dimensional geometric shape formed by connecting all the corners of a polygon to a central apex.

There are many types of pyramids. Most often, they are named after the type of base they have. Let’s look at some common types of pyramids below.

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Volume of a square pyramid [base of Pyramid is square] = (1/3) * (b^2) * h
Volume of a triangular pyramid [base of Pyramid is triangle] = (1/6) * a * b * h
Volume of a pentagonal pyramid [base of Pyramid is pentagonal] = (5/6) * a * b * h
Volume of a hexagonal pyramid [base of Pyramid is hexagonal] = a * b * h

Below is code for calculating volume of Pyramids :
