    Great! So try to divide the figure into two parts: 1. the pyramid 2. The cube

    Now, a cube's surface is basically 6 squares, so what would the area of the surface of the cube be?

    That's the area of one square. A cube's surface is made of 6 squares. So the surface area of the cube is 6 times the area of a square, right?

    Yeah, so that's the surface area of the bottom part. Now let us look at the top part, it is a right pyramid, which is basically 4 triangles and a square on the surface

    Exactly, for the pyramid your main problem is finding s what's the formula for s? You're very close!

    B is the area of the base, which is a square, which you calculated above was 256! P is the perimeter of the base, which is the sum of all sides of the base, So P = 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 = 64

    So we are left with s, which is the slant height. Slant height \[s=\sqrt{{h^2}+{r^2}}\] where h is the height, and r is the radius of the base The radius of the base is half the side of the square, so r = 8. Can you calculate s?

    So, you said the formula was B + 1/2Ps B = 256 (area of square) P = 64 (perimeter of square) s = 17 So total surface area of the pyramid is?

    So now, you have a pyramid and a cube Area of pyramid = 800 Area of cube = 1536 Now if you join the two, you will not see one side of the cube, and the base of the pyramid. Do you understand that?

    So you have to subtract the area of two things: 1. The base of the pyramid 2. One square from the cube.

    So your final area will be: 1536 + 800 - (area of 1 square) - (area of 1 square) = 1536 + 800 - 256 - 256
