Quadrangular pyramid

Calculate the surface area and volume of a regular quadrangular pyramid:
sides of bases (bottom, top): a1 = 18 cm, a2 = 6cm
angle α = 60 ° (Angle α is the angle between the sidewall and the base plane.)
S =? , V =?

Correct answer:

h =  10.3923 cm
S =  936 cm2
V =  1621.2 cm3

Step-by-step explanation:

S3=a1 h3/2=18 18/2=162 cm2 S4=a2 h4/2=6 6/2=18 cm2 S=4 (S3S4)+S1+S2=4 (16218)+324+36=936 cm2
V=h/3 (S1+S1 S2+S2)=10.3923/3 (324+324 36+36)=936 3=1621.2 cm3
