If you make a line from the top of the pyramid to the center of the base, you have the height of the pyramid. This meets at the midsegment of a line going across the base. Since the height of a pyramid is perpendicular with the base, get this:

the height, a line of 1/2 the length of the base, and the slant height form a right triangle. So, you can use the Pythagorean Theorem! For example, if the base length is 6 and the height of the pyramid is 4, then you can plug them into the Pythagorean Theorem (a squared + b squared = c squared, a and b being the legs of a right triangle and c being the hypotenuse). 1/2 the length of the base would be 6 divided by 2=3. 3 squared + 4 squared = slant height squared. 9+16=slant height squared. 25= slant height squared. Slant height=5 units. You're welcome!

Is the lateral edge of a pyramid is also its 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.

When you see a picture of a right pyramid with a regular polygon base how do you identify its height and its slant height?

Its vertical height is that of the perpendicular from the centre of the base to the apex; the slant height is the length of the sloping "corner" between two faces. The height of a regular pyramid is the vertical distance from the center of base to the top and is usually shown with a line perpendicular to the base, denoted with a right angle to the base. The slant height it the height of the lateral face (the triangles) from the edge of the base to the top of the pyramid. It is the height of the triangle, not the pyramid itself. The slant height will also be the hypotenuse of a right angle formed from the altitude of the pyramid and the distance from the center of the base to the edge.
