To calculate the surface area of a truncated pyramid, you first take the surface area of each side. That would be the base time the straight height. If it is a 4 side pyramid with equivelant sides, multiply that answer by 4.

A decagon based pyramid. It is a hendecahedron but that can take many shapes. A nonagon based prism, for example.

The answer to this question depends on what sort of pyramid it is, and that depends on the shape of the base. You can get triangular pyramids (with a triangular base), square pyramids (like those in Egypt), pentagonal pyramids and so on. Let me take just one -- the square pyramid. Let the length of the base sides be 'a' units. Let 'h' units be the perpendicular height (i.e. at right angles to the base and going through the peak of the pyramid) of each side. I gather by lateral area that you mean surface area including the base. I use the symbol * to mean x or multiply. Then the formula for working out the surface area is a*a for the base PLUS each triangular face is 1/2*a*h There are 4 triangular sides so the surface area is (a*a) + 4*(1/2*a*h) If you just want the 4 sides, leave out a*a.

750, if you need no extra!

In the biological world the surface area ratio to the volume determines if a cell will explode. The reason salt can cause swelling or the death of plants.Paint is a more common use of surface area. How much paint will it take to cover a room 12x12x8 with the ceiling but not the floor.

it could take years decades or even centries

About 20 years for the great pyramid.

It doesn't take up much area on the ground (it's roots branch downward)

The shape would be an upside down pyramid

The longest took about 22 years, for proof I got that off a history book.

About 20 years for the Great Pyramid other smaller pyramids take less time.

The Great Pyramid was built in 10 years. This, however, is not an average time. Building time varied from pyramid to pyramid.

The shape would be an upside down pyramid

Roughly 20 years to build the Pyramid of Giza.

It depends on what pyramid your talking about. The Great Pyramid took at least 20 years to build.
