**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 3:25pmDoes a pyramid have a radius?

1/3 areabase*height

Surface area depends on the shape.

area base + area of all sides

**Billy**, Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 3:40pmThat's what I'm confused about.

The question that my teacher assigned clearly said "radius" and I'm not sure if I can apply that term as a "side".

**Billy**, Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 3:42pmCan I assume that the radius is the same as a side? Or do I double it?

**bobpursley**, Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 3:51pmApparently, your teacher had a brain freeze on writing the problem. If it were me, I would work it as "side", and say so, and why. Sometimes teachers err.

**Billy**, Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 3:58pmOkay.

Thank you very much for your help!
