I broke this down into 3 parts for ease of explination
for the triangles the formula is base (b) times height (h) divided by 2, in other words it should be this (b * h) / 2
we can plug in the base of 440 and the height of 356 like this (440 * 356) / 2
This will leave us with 156640 / 2
and the the divide by 2 leaves us with 78320
we must remember that there are 4 sides (not including the bottom) on a pyramid and must now multiply by 4 giving us 78320 * 4
this is now 313280
we now must take care of the base. the formula for this is b * h
since the bottom of the pyramid is a square the base and height are the same and so the equation is 440*440
this comes out to 193600
We now add the surface areas of the triangles and squares together 313280 + 193600
and your final answer should be 506880
