**Steve**, Sunday, July 14, 2013 at 5:00pmlateral edge is an edge from the base to the vertex. As opposed to a base edge.

If the base edge is 6, the base diagonal is 6√2

Now draw a right triangle from the center of the base to the vertex, including one base corner.

(6√2/2)^2 + h^2 = (√34)^2

18 + h^2 = 34

h = 4

So, now we have height 4 and base edge 6, so the faces are triangles with

base = 6

height = √(3^2 + 4^2) = 5

lateral area is thus 4 * 1/2 (6)(5)

add the square base if desired.
