trying to to figure the volume for a truck box i am building. i know how to split the triangle shape of the box so as to look like a rectangle and triangle to figure the volume. what is the formula to figure out the volume for the triangle of the box?

if this is to confusing let me know-lol

Length x width x height.

Isn't the Pythagorean theorem taught in junior HS nowadays?
