Strategy: 1) Find the formula for the volume of a regular square pyramid. 2) Use the volume formula you found to find the volume of Pyramid A and Pyramid B. 3) Form a fraction or ratio, using the volume of Pyramid A as the numerator or first number of the ratio and Pyramid B as the denominator or second number in the ratio.
