# Surface Area of a Square Pyramid Calculator

In a three dimensional space, square pyramid is a polyhedron with square as its base. It is a pyramid with four triangular sides, five vertices, and eight edges. All the triangular faces (that is side faces) connect together at the common point right above the base and is known as apex. Surface area refers to the total outer surface of the shape. Use this online surface area of a square pyramid calculator to calculate SA by entering the base and slant height value.

### Example:

Calculate SA of square pyramid having a base of 15 cm and slant height of 12 cm.

#### Solution:

Surface Area = b^{2} + 2bl

= 15^{2} + 2 x 15 x 12

= 585 cm^{2}
