**Reiny**, Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 8:34amDraw one of the side triangles, and consider its altitude from the base of 12, call that x

x^2 + 6^2 = 15^2

x^2 = 19

x =√189

so the surface area = the base + 4triangles

= 144 + 4(1/2)(12)(√189) = ....

for the volume , we need the height of the pyramid,

call it h

h^2 + 6^2 = (√189)^2

h^2 = 153

h = √153

volume = (1/3)(base)(height)

= (1/3)(144)(√153

= 48√153
