**Reiny**, Monday, February 6, 2012 at 9:53pmLook at one of the triangles, which is isosceles with a base of 8 and each of the equal sides of length 20

Height of triangle: let it be h

h^2 + 4^2 = 20^2

h^2 = 384

h = √384

Area of one triangle = (1/2)(8)(√384) = 4√384

Assuming the surface area consists only of the 4 triangles,

surface area = 4(4√384) or 16(8√6) = 128√6
