The answer is 282 square units. The surface area (SA) of the sum of the area of its base (A1) and 4 areas (A2) of the slant side. It is 4 because it is the square pyramid and it has 4 slant sides. SA = A1 + 4A2 The area of the base (A1) is the area of the square with side a: A1 = a² The area of the slant area (A2) is of the square pyramid with side a and slant height s is: A2 = a · s /2 So, it is known: a = 10 u s = 9.1 u Therefore: SA = A1 + 4A2 = a² + 4 · a · s /2 = a² + 2 · a · s = 10² + 2 · 10 · 9.1 = 100 + 182 = 282 u²
