Can someone help me set up an equation for the problem?

A customer wants to make a teepee in his backyard for his children. He plans to use lengths of PVC plumbing pipe for the supports on the teepee, and he wants the teepee to be 12 feet across and 8 feet tall. How long should the PVC plumbing pipe be?

    What is the shape of the teepee? A pyramid with a square base? Most teepees I have seen are conical.

    12divided by 1/2=6x6=36
    36+64=100^2=10 ft
