Textbook Problem

A teepee is constructed by using

To determine

**To find:**

The volume of the pyramid.

Explanation

**Given:**

A teepee in shape of a regular pyramid with a dodecagon (12 sides) for the base as below,

and the height of the teepee is

**Properties Used:**

A pyramid is made by connecting a base to an apex. The base is flat with straight edges, no curves, hence, a polygon and all other faces are triangles.

A regular pyramid is a pyramid whose base is a regular polygon and whose lateral edges are all congruent.

The lateral area

The total surface area

According to the Pythagorean theorem, in a right-angled triangle

In a regular pyramid, the lengths of the apothem

The perimeter of the square is four times the side
