Volume tells us the amount of space there is inside a given 3D shape. It’s kind of like the 3D version of area. To find the volume of a cone or pyramid, we need to multiply the area of the base by the height, and then divide by 3.$Volume=3base area×Height $This formula is very similar to the formula for the volume of a cylinder and prism. The only difference is that there’s one additional step...dividing by 3!

We can also think about this formula in terms of cake!
