## Hexagonal Pyramid Tutorial

##### Hexagonal Pyramid Definition:

A Hexagonal Pyramid is a pyramid with a Hexagonal base.

#### Hexagonal Pyramid Formula :

Area of Base(A) = (6/2)as = 3as Surface Area of Pyramid = 3as + 3sl = A + 3sl Volume of Pyramid = abh
###### where
a = apothem length, s,b = side, h = height and l = slant height
##### Hexagonal Pyramid Image/Diagram ##### Hexagonal Pyramid Example :
###### Case 1:

Find the surface area and volume of a hexagonal pyramid with the given apothem length 2, side 3, height 4 and the slant height 5.

###### Step 1:

Find the area of the base. Area of the base(A) = 3as = 3 * 2 * 3 = 18.

###### Step 2:

Find the surface area of pyramid. Surface Area of Pyramid = A + 3sl = 18 + (3 * 3 * 5) = 18 + 45 = 63.

###### Step 3:

Find the volume of pyramid. Volume of Pyramid = abh = 2 * 3 * 4 = 24. The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Volume, Surface Area of a Hexagonal Pyramid manually.
