#### The sum of the 10 first squares

Look at these pyramids. They are made of square pieces, all of the same height, which is the depth of each step. Hence their volume is the sum of the squares. You have six of them to make a cuboid. If there are ten stairs, what is the size of this cuboid made of the six pyramids?
