Surface Area of Pyramids  Lesson 122
Today, we looked at how to find the surface area of pyramids. We started by defining this type of polyhedron:
After this, looked at finding the total surface area in the following two examples:
In order to find the total surface area, we looked at the base and the lateral faces:
We found their areas and added them to determine the total surface area of the pyramid:
We then looked at the following problem:
We found the total surface area as shown below:
