Calculate Volume of Pyramid

To calculate the volume of the Pyramid, you need to ask user to enter breadth and height of Pyramid.


1. breadth : (Datatype int): to represent the breadth 1 of the pyramid.

2. height : (Datatype int): to represent the height of the pyramid.

3. volume_of_pyramid : (Datatype float): to store volume of pyramid calculated.


Volume of a Pyramid : (1/3) x Breadth x Height

//	clrscr();

	printf(" Program to calculate Volume of a Pyramid:  ");

	printf("\n\n Enter the Breadth of Pyramid : ");
	scanf("%d", &breadth);
    printf("\n\n Enter the Height of Pyramid : ");
	scanf("%d", &height);
    volume_of_pyramid = (1/3)*breadth*height;

	printf("\n\n Volume of Pyramid with Breadth as %d and Height as %d = %f",breadth,height,volume_of_pyramid);

//	getch();

Program to calculate Volume of a Pyramid :
Enter the Breadth of Pyramid: 2
Enter the Height of Pyramid: 5
Volume of Pyramid with Breadth as 2 and Height as 5 = 3.333333
