# VolofCShapes3 ```The Volume of
Complex
Figures
All of the formulas for volume can
be found on the sheet posted at the
top of the Measurement and
Geometry Page
This sheet will be provided to you on all
quizzes, tests, and exams, so there is no
need to memorize the structure.
We will try an example of each
of the more complex formulas
just to be sure we are clear on
the order of operations
the Great Pyramid of Khufu
• The Great Pyramid of Giza. Built in 2560
BC, it is the oldest and largest of the three
pyramids in the Giza Necropolis.
This pyramid is 147m tall.
The length of each base side is 230 m
Determine its volume
Find the Volume of the Pyramid
