A teepee is constructed by using poles. The construction leads to a regular pyramid with a dodecagon (12 sides) for the base. With the base as shown, and knowing that the height of the teepee is , find its volume.
The volume of the pyramid.
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 and side of the base as and apothem .
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 of a regular pyramid with slant height of length and perimeter of the base is given by
The total surface area of a pyramid with lateral area and base area is given by
According to the Pythagorean theorem, in a right-angled triangle
In a regular pyramid, the lengths of the apothem of the base, the altitude , and the slant height satisfy the Pythagorean Theorem; that is, .
The perimeter of the square is four times the side
