  1. Calculate the surface area of the square pyramid whose base side is 6cm and the slant height of the pyramid is 8cm?


    Step 1 :  

    Here it is given that side length of the base(S) = 6cm and slant height of the pyramid(L) = 8cm.


    Now plug in the values by applying the formula


    Surface area of a square pyramid = (S×S) + 2×S×L Surface area of a square pyramid = (6×6) + 2×6×8



    Answer  :  

    Surface area of a square pyramid = 132 cm2



  2. Calculate the surface area of the square pyramid whose base side is 4cm and the slant height of the pyramid is 10 cm?


    Step 1 :  

    So this will be = (4×4) + 2×4×10 =16 + 80 = 96cm2



    Answer  :  

    96cm2
