Areas of Polyhedra

The net of a pyramid whose base is a regular polygon.


You can rotate the figure by moving the red dot.

When you click on Init, another pyramid will appear. Observe the net of several pyramids.

To find the total surface area of a pyramid, we add up the surface area of its base and the lateral surface area.
