The net of a square pyramid is shown below:

Net of a square pyramid showing 4 triangles and the square base. The square base has side lengths of 2 inches. The height of each triangle attached to the square is 5 inches. The base of the triangle is the side of the square.

What is the surface area of the solid?


If you cant see the picture please tell me I will send it in messages.

Surface area of the base  = (2)^2 =  4in^2


Area of each triangle =  (1/2) (side length of base)(height) = (1/2) (2)(5) = 5in^2


So...surface area =   base area +  area of 4 triangles =  4 + 4(5)  =  24 in ^2
