Answer:The height of the original pyramid is 20 units

Step-by-step explanation:Answer:80 units

Step-by-step explanation:v = 1/3 bh

v₁ = 1/3 * b * h₁ = 344

v₂ = 1/3 * b * h₂ = 301

v₁ / v₂ = h₁ / h₂ = 344 / 301

h₂ = h₁ – 10

h₁ / (h₁ – 10) = 344 / 301

344 * (h₁ – 10) = 301 * h₁

344* h₁ – 3440 = 301 * h₁

43 * h₁ = 3440

h₁ = 80
