The total surface area of a pyramid is defined as the sum of all the areas of the given faces and including base value in it. The formula for finding the total surface area of a pyramid is:

The total surface area of pyramid = area of the base + 4 * area of triangular face;

The number of a triangular faces depend upon the number of the sides of the base.

If we find the total surface area of pyramid with a Square base then the formula is:

The total surface area of pyramid = area of the base + 4 * area of triangular face.

We see some of the steps for finding the total surface area of a pyramid:
