The surface area of a pyramid is the area of all the faces of the pyramid, for a pyramid with apex in the centre and a regular polygon as its base, (the bottom of a pyramid is the base, it is regular if all sides are the same length) the surface area is:

B + 1/2(P * H) where B is the area of the base, P is the perimeter (area around) the base and H is the height of the pyramid.

Obviously, the pyramids have a lot to do with triangles. To find the hight, length, width, volume, angle of ascent, and surface area of the pyramids, the egyptians had to use trigonometry.

There is no "regular pyramid". There are triangle pyramids, square pyramids, pentagon pyramids, etc. With the information given in your question, there is no way to answer.

the question is the anwser

to find the surface area you have to first find the area of each part then add the areas together.

It depends on the surface area of what!
