# Pyramid cut

We cut the regular square pyramid with a parallel plane to the two parts (see figure). The volume of the smaller pyramid is 20% of the volume of the original one. The bottom of the base of the smaller pyramid has a content of 10 cm

^{2}. Find the area of the original pyramid.**Result****Leave us a comment of example and its solution (i.e. if it is still somewhat unclear...):**
