.Which of the following is a situation where finding neither the lateral area nor the surface area would be appropriate?
choices Determining how many bricks are needed to build a pyramid with a brick floor. Determining how much stucco is needed to stucco the walls and roof of a building. Determining how much paint is needed to entirely paint a pyramid-shaped ornament. Determining how much paint is needed to paint the walls of your bedroom.
The first one. Finding the Surface Area or Lateral Area will give you no information about the floor
ok cool thanks we both agree
Although i believe if you take the Surface Area - the lateral area of a pyramid, you'll get the area of the bottom, or floor :P
Just for the future students who look at this, I submitted my exam with this answer about the brick floor and it was wrong..
