A prism with height 2cm and a pyramid with height 5cm have congruent triangular base. Find the ratio of their volumes.

Thank You

2. Volume of a Prism = Area of cross section * Height

Volume of Pyramid = (1/3) * Area of base * Height

Let the area of the triangle be x.

Volume of Prism = x * 2

Volume of Pyramid = (1/3) * x * 5

Volume of Prism $= 2x
$

Volume of Pyramid $= \frac{5x}{3}
$

Ratio of volumes:

$
2x : \frac{5x}{3}
$

Can you simply that?
