How to calculate volume of 3D triangle

I am trying to calculate the volume of a 3D triangle. The three sides of the triangle are 45'x45'x35' and the depth is 7'. I wasn't sure if it was as simple as calculating the area of the triangle and then multipling that result by 7 to give cubic feet or if it is more complicated than that. Thanks for any assistance!
