A stone sculpture in a park is in the shape of a square pyramid. The area of the base of the sculpture is 49 square feet. What is the lateral area of the sculpture in square feet? (I got 294 when I worked it out, but it's probably incorrect because I used the area instead of the perimeter in the formula ^^")

what is the formula for lateral area of a square pyramid?
anonymous

LA = 1/2 perimeter x slant height

But I do not have the perimeter of the base, only the area.

ok, but the base is a square, right?

Yes

which means the length and width are the same area of a square = (length of side)^2

So... seven?

yes... thats the way to do it can you get it from there?

Do you mean the slant height?
anonymous

Slant height is 12...

I used that in the proper equation but I got stuck at the perimeter part...
