    First find the area of the base. The formula is 1/2(perimeter)(apothem)

    Not we have to find the area of one of those triangles and multiply by 5. I'll draw a picture. We know the base is 10.17 and the slant height is the height of the triangle.

    Now add the area of the base that we calculated earlier. That should be the total surface area.

    If you look back through the posts you will find the area of the base and the area of the 5 triangles. Add them together to get the total area.

    Now the volume. Fortunately we are partly done with the volume because we already know the area of the base.

    So find that number. The area of the base. To find the volume multiply these 3 numbers: 1/3, the area of the base, and the height of the pyramid which is shown in the picture to be what?

    The slant height is the height of the triangles that make the pyramid.

    Yes. 1/3(24)=8 so multiply 8 times the area of the base. What do you get?
