The net of a square pyramid is shown below:
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
