The volume of a pyramid with base area A and height H is given by V = (1/3)*A*H

If a pyramid has to be built with volume 165000 m^3 and the base area is 2500 m^2, the height should be H such that (1/3)*2500*H = 165000

=> H = (165000*3)/2500

=> H = 198 m

The height of the pyramid should be 198 m.
