Answer:Height of the building is 32.67 meters.Step-by-step explanation:Volume of a Pyramid =

Side of the square base of the Memphis pyramid = 180 m

Height of the pyramid = 98 meters

Volume =

= 1058400 cubic meters

Another building having the same base and volume, is in the shape of a prism.

Therefore, Volume of the pyramid = volume of the building(prism) = 1058400 cubic meters

Volume of the prism = (Area of the base) × height

1058400 = (180)²h

h =

h =

32.67 metersTherefore,

height of the building in the prism shape is 32.67 meters.
