6. What is the volume of a regular square pyramid which has a total area of 360 if the square base is 10 on a side.

The Volume of a Pyramid = 1/3 Ã— [Base Area] Ã— Height
The Surface Area of a Pyramid = 1/2 Ã— Perimeter Ã— [Side Length] + [Base Area]
Here you're given Total area = 360 and base side = 10. We can get the side length first:

360 = 0.5*4*10*sidelength + 100
260 = 20*side length
side length = 13

Hence height =
Thus volume of pyramid = 1/3*100*12= ...
