# A pyramid has a square base with sides 8" and a slant height of 5". total area =

**Solution:**

It is given that

Given that, base with sides = 8" and slant height = 5"

To find the area of the pyramid, we will use the formula for the area of a square pyramid: A = 2 × b × s + b^{2}

Here, b = base length and s = slant height

Now, we will put the value of b and s in the formula, we get,

A = (2 × 8 × 5 + 8^{2}) square inches

A = 144 square inches

Hence, the area of the pyramid is 144 square inches.

We can also find out the surface area of a square pyramid by using the Surface Area of a Square Pyramid Calculator

## A pyramid has a square base with sides 8" and a slant height of 5". total area =

**Summary:**

A pyramid has a square base with sides 8" and a slant height of 5". total area = 144 square inches.
