Surface Area of a Rectangular Pyramid – Formulas and Examples

Surface Area of a Rectangular Pyramid – Formulas and Examples

The surface area of a rectangular pyramid is calculated by adding the areas of all the faces of the pyramid. In this type of pyramids, we have one rectangular face and four triangular faces. The opposite triangular faces have the same area. In total, we need three...

Surface Area of a Triangular Pyramid – Formulas and Examples

The surface area of a triangular pyramid is equal to the sum of the areas of all the faces of the pyramid. In this type of pyramids, all the faces are triangular, so we have to use the formula for the area of a triangle to get a formula for the surface area. Here, we...
