This pyramid would have a perpendicular height of 3, a volume of 64 units3 and a slant edge of 6.403

Because the Hypotinuse is the sum of the square of the other two sides. The sum of the square of the base plus the square of the height equals the slope.

429 m

The slant height will be 25 cm

The slant height of a square pyramid is always perpendicular to the base. It is form the top vertex all the way down to the most center of one side of the base edge.

544 m2

The surface area of the pyramid is superfluous to calculating the slant height as the slant height is the height of the triangular side of the pyramid which can be worked out using Pythagoras on the side lengths of the equilateral triangle: side² = height² + (½side)² → height² = side² - ¼side² → height² = (1 - ¼)side² → height² = ¾side² → height = (√3)/2 side → slant height = (√3)/2 × 9cm = 4.5 × √3 cm ≈ 7.8 cm. ---------------------------- However, the surface area can be used as a check: 140.4 cm² ÷ (½ × 9 cm × 7.8 cm) = 140.4 cm² ÷ 35.1 cm² = 4 So the pyramid comprises 4 equilateral triangles - one for the base and 3 for the sides; it is a tetrahedron.

It depends on the dimensions of the base and the height (slant or vertical) of the pyramid.

The volume of a regular pyramid with a square base of 8cm and a slant height of 5 cm is: 64 cm3

I don't know not mine

Volume of the pyramid: 1/3*base area*height in cubic m

You need some information about the height of the pyramid and the formula will depend on whether you have the vertical height or the slant height or the length of a lateral edge.

It is 9180900 square inches.

slant height of the pyramid Louvre in Paris=28 meters

120

Because that makes it a pyramid. It it did not slant it would be a cube

It is 448 square cm.

No.

The height of the triangular face of a pyramid is called the slant height.

No, the slant height is the from the top vertex to the base of the base of the pyramid, it forms a 90 degree angle with the base and slant height. The lateral edge is literally the lateral (side) edge.

72 cm square.

false

Lateral area: Twice the side of the square times the slant height. Surface area: The side of the square squared plus twice the side of the square times the slant height. a=side of square b=slant height L.A.=2(ab) S.A.=(a)(a)+(2(ab))

If there is a picture, it would be very useful, because the height and slant height are two sides of a right triangle. A good picture would show that the bottom side of this triangle is half the side length of the square. This is a leg of the right triangle: A=12' The hypotenuse of the triangle is the slant height: C=46' The "unknown" height is the other leg of the right triangle: B=? The pythagorean theorem A2+B2=C2 gives 144sqft+B2=2116sqft Solving for B gives B=44.4' Therefore, the height of the pyramid is 44.4 feet.
