### What is Meant by Pyramid?

In mathematics, a pyramid is a polyhedron having a base and at least three triangular faces which meet each other at a single point called the apex. Based on the base, a pyramid can be a triangular pyramid, square pyramid, pentagonal pyramid, etc. the formula to calculate the base area, surface area and the volume of the square pyramid  and the triangular pyramid are as follows:

 Pyramid Base Area Surface Area Volume Square Pyramid b2 2bs + b2 (⅓) b2h Triangular Pyramid ½ ab (½) ab + (3/2) bs (⅙) abh

Here,

• b: base length of the triangular pyramid.
• h: height of the triangular pyramid.
• s: slant height of the triangular pyramid.
• a: apothem length of the triangular pyramid.
