to find the volume you do base times width times height.

area of a square is base times height area of a triangle is base times height divided by two!!

You have the base or the height, so just square it. If base (or height) is 5, the area is 52 or 25.

the area of a square equals the product of the base and the height. or, because in a square the base and height are the same it would be the value of the base squared. square base x height = area

-- Square the hypotenuse. (Multiply it by itself.)-- Square the base. (Multiply it by itself.)-- Subtract the square of the base from the square of the hypotenuse.-- Take the square-root of the difference. It's the height of the triangle.

The square of the length of the base plus the square of the length of the height will equal the square of the length of the hypotenuse of your right triangle, per Pythagoras. Square the hypotenuse, subtract the square of the height, and then find the positive square root of that and you'll have the base of your right triangle.

In math terms, a pyramid could have a square base, triangular base or another shape. The Egyptian pyramids (and Aztec ones) had a square base. So they had 8 edges (for on the base and 4 rising to the top) and 5 faces (4 facing up and the base).
