if a square pyramid has a base side length of 6.3 m and a slant height of 4 m. find its surface area

  • math -

    Consider one of the four isosceles triangles.
    drawing a line from the top vertex to the midpoint of the base gives you a right-angled triangle whose height can be found by

    h^2 + 3.15^2 = 4^2
    h = √6.0775

    the surface area of the four triangles is then
    4*(1/2)(6.3)51√6.0775
    = 31.06

    if you want to include the area of the base to your answer, add 6.3^2
