A) Find the volume of a truncated pyramid with a regular hexagonal base.

perimeter of bottom = 1.2 km

perimeter of top = 480 m

height = 200m

B) If density = 1500 kg/m^3 how much work was done in construction?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I first split the hexagon into 6 equilateral triangles found the area to be about 102.9 m^2, and...well thats pretty much all i got. i cant figure out how to integrate it correctly to find a volume.
