Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk.. it just says find the slant height of the regular pyramid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slant height is just the hypotenuse of he right triangle that is formed by 15 and 12/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Indeed. \[15^2 + 6^2 = \text{Slant height}^2\] \[ \rightarrow \text{Slant height} = \sqrt{15^2 + 6^2} = \sqrt{225+36} = \sqrt{261} \approx 16.1555\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would be ft ^2 right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. You have \[\sqrt{ft^2 + ft^2} \] So it will be in ft.
