(Pages 578­582)

A pyramid is a solid figure that has a polygon for a base and triangles for sides, or lateral faces. Pyramids have just one base. The lateral faces intersect at a point called the vertex. Pyramids are named for the shapes of their bases. For example, a triangular pyramid has a triangle for a base. A square pyramid has a square for a base. The slant height of a pyramid is the altitude of any of the lateral faces of the pyramid. To find the surface area of a pyramid, you must find the area of the base and the area of each lateral face. The area of the lateral surface of a pyramid is the area of the lateral faces (not including the base). A circular cone is another solid figure and is shaped like some ice cream cones. Circular cones have a circle for their base.

Surface Area of a Circular Cone The surface area of a cone is equal to the area of the base, plus the lateral area of the cone. The surface area of the base is equal to r 2. The lateral area is equal to r , where is the slant height of the cone. So, the surface area of the cone, SA, is equal to r 2 r .
