your link does not let me see the figure. The lateral area is the area of the 4 sides (does not include the bottom) do they give the slant height?

the formula is area= base*height/2 (you could google area triangle if you forget) can you find the area of one side of the pyramid?

1600?
phi

because the bottom of the pyramid is square, each base is 8. You have 4 identical sides. Can you find the total lateral area (all 4 sides) if one side is 44

fixed a typo. How did you get 1600? OK 4*44= 176 if we add in the units 176 square feet
