Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can't help you because I still don't understand what info about the pyramid you were given, and the formula is different depending on what info you are given.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(l = \sqrt{\left( \dfrac{s}{2} \right)^2 + h^2}\) \(A_{one~face} = \dfrac{s \sqrt{\left( \frac{s}{2} \right)^2 + h^2}}{2}\) \(Lateral~Surface~Area = 4 \times \dfrac{s \sqrt{\left( \frac{s}{2} \right)^2 + h^2}}{2}\) \(Lateral ~Surface~Area = 2 s \sqrt{\left( \frac{s}{2} \right)^2 + h^2}\) \(Lateral ~Surface~Area = s \sqrt{s^2 + 4h^2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you are given the length of the base, s, and the height of each triangular face, l, then the formula is: \(Lateral~Surface~Area = 4 \times \dfrac{s \times l}{2} \) \(Lateral~Surface~Area = 2sl \)
