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 cm2. Find the area of the original pyramid.

Correct result:

S1 =  29.2402 cm2


S2=10 cm2 S2=a22 a2=S2=10=10 cm3.1623 cm  V2=20100V1  13S2 h2=2010013S1 h1 S2 h2=0.20 S1 h1  a1:h1=a2:h2 a1:a2=h1:h2  S2=a1/a2 0.20 S1 a23=a13 0.20  a1=a23/0.203 a1=a2 1/0.203=3.1623 1/0.2035.4074 cm  S1=a12=5.40742=29.2402 cm2
