To begin, i am required to draw a square pyramid as follows: 1. draw a 3 dimensional diagram of a square based pyramid 2. label the square base as ABCD, call the vertex H. 3. Mark in E and F the midpoints of AD and BC respectively and O is the midpoint of EF Note: this therefore makes FO = FC this i was fine with, it was the following question that stumped me. 1. if the height of the pyramid is 280m, what is the length of the base? Thanks, GeorgiaAnswered by Chris Fisher.
