Homework Help: math

Posted by m on Wednesday, January 5, 2011 at 9:52am.

looking at a square pyramid, if the size of the base remains the same and the height of the pyramid varies what are the minimum surface area and minimum volume the pyramid can have? The base is showing 2 in and the line on the right side of the base which I believe is also still the bottom of the pyramid shows 2 in. the height indicator inside the pyramid has the right angle marking on it but there is no number listed for that height.

I am confused on how to do surface area and volume if V=1/3bh and we don't know the height? Same with trying to figure out the surface area?
