1. these are all the same problem.

The lateral area is just the area of eight identical isosceles triangles, each with base equal to the side of the octagon, and height equal to the slant height of the pyramid, or √(h^2+a^2) where h is the height of the pyramid and a is the apothem of the base polygon.
