Answer:The volume of a 3D figure can be determined by the sum of all the cross-sections of that 3D figure parallel to the base

Step-by-step explanation:We need to understand what a cross-section of a 3D figure ?A cross section is the shape we get when cutting straight through an object

and in geometry it is the shape made when a solid is cut through by a plane.

=> the cross section is parallel to the base of the figure.

So that the area of the cross-section is determined by its shape

Hence, The volume of a 3D figure can be determined by the sum of all the cross-sections of that 3D figure parallel to the base
