Problem

What is the volume of tetrahedron $ABCD$ with edge lengths $AB = 2$, $AC = 3$, $AD = 4$, $BC = \sqrt{13}$, $BD = 2\sqrt{5}$, and $CD = 5$ ?

$\textbf{(A)} ~3 \qquad\textbf{(B)} ~2\sqrt{3} \qquad\textbf{(C)} ~4\qquad\textbf{(D)} ~3\sqrt{3}\qquad\textbf{(E)} ~6$

Solution

Drawing the tetrahedron out and testing side lengths, we realize that the triangles ABD and ABC are right triangles. It is now easy to calculate the volume of the tetrahedron, obtaining an answer of $\boxed{C}$.
