Surface area is a two-dimensional property of a three-dimensional figure. Pyramids have polygonal bases and triangular faces, which are congruent if the base is regular. To find the total surface area of a pyramid, first find the area of the base and then find the area of each triangular faces. The height of each triangle is called the slant height. Related topics include regular polygonal area and triangle area.
