# 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
