    Volume Puzzle

    Here's an interesting problem for people to try:

    Triangle ABC

    AB = 21
    AC = 11
    BC = 20

    If you draw out that triangle, and then draw the midsegments. If you fold along the lines of the midsegments, then you get a tetrahedron. What is the volume of that Pyramid?
