## How do you find the lateral height of a pyramid?

The lateral area of a right pyramid can be calculated by multiplying half of the perimeter of the base by the slant height. This is summarized by the formula: LA 5 Ps. We can relate this formula to the square pyramid below and its net. The side length of the base of the pyramid is b, and the slant height is s.
