#### Formula:

b=√ (3 x (v / h))
**Where,**
b = base length
v = volume of square pyramid
h = height of square pyramid
### Example:

A square pyramid has a Volume of 15 m^{3} and height of 8m. Find Length of the Base Edges of the Square Pyramid.

#### Solution

Base length = √ (3 x (15 / 8))

=√ (3 x 1.85)

=√ 5.625

= 2.3717 m
