The roof of a building is shaped like a square pyramid, with a base of 18m by 18m. If the slant height of the roof is 12m and roofing costs 5.75m2, how much will it cost for roofing material?

if the pyramid has 4 sides does each side have 18m?

    You have four triangles of base 18 and altitude 12
    area = 4 * (1/2) * 18 * 12

    multiply area by 5.75 to get cost

    area roof= 4*1/2 * 18*12

    cost= area * $5.72 That is pretty cheap roofing, about 50cents/square foot.
