    i googled it and it says slant height is the distance up the face. that distance is equal to sqrt(15^2 + 6^2) sqrt(225 + 36) = sqrt(261) right?

    the slant height is just the hypotenuse of he right triangle that is formed by 15 and 12/2

    Indeed. \[15^2 + 6^2 = \text{Slant height}^2\] \[ \rightarrow \text{Slant height} = \sqrt{15^2 + 6^2} = \sqrt{225+36} = \sqrt{261} \approx 16.1555\]

    sqrt(5^2 + 13^2) then sqrt(25 + 196)

    since the height of thing comes down to the middle of a side, the length you use for the bottom leg is just half of a side....2/2 = 1

    No. You have \[\sqrt{ft^2 + ft^2} \] So it will be in ft.
