Regular triangular pyramid

Calculate the volume and surface area of the regular triangular pyramid. The height of the pyramid is 12 centimeters. The bottom edge has 4 centimeters, and the height of the sidewall is 12 centimeters.

Correct answer:

V =  96 cm3
S =  96 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

h=12 cm a=4 cm h2=12 cm  S1=a h2/2=4 12/2=24 cm2  V=31 S1 h=31 24 12=96 cm3
S=4 S1=4 24=96 cm2
