Homework Help: math

Find the lateral area of a regular pyramid whose base is a square, whose slant height is 5 m, whose height is 3 m.

I think that the answer is 60. I subtracted 3 squared from 5 squared and I got 4. I multipled 4 by 2 and I got 8. I made a formula 3(1/2(8 x 5)) and I got 60 as my lateral area. Is this right?
