What makes this question tricky to answer is the understanding of the terms. Were the correct terms used in the question, and does the question poster and answer contributor have the same understanding of those terms? Having said that, here goes. A prism is a polyhedron with at least two congruent parallel faces. They are called the bases. The other faces (the "lateral faces") are parallelograms that are formed by lines that connect the corresponding vertices of the two bases. A quadrangular prism has a quadrangular base (such as a rectangle). If the base is some sort of regular polygon, it's called a regular prism. The lateral area of a prism is defined as the total area of the lateral faces. To calculate the lateral area, you multiply the length of an edge by the perimeter of the face that is perpendicular (at right angles to) to that edge. So, assuming the height, 4 cm in this case, is perpendicular to the perimeter, 16 cm, we calculate the lateral area to be 4 x 16 or 64 square centimeters or 64 cm2.

How do you find the base of a regular pyramid when you have the perimeter and the slant height?

The slant height doesn't help you get the answer. Apart from the perimeter, you would need SOME other information about the base; either the number of sides, or anything that can help you calculate the number of sides. For example, if the base is a regular pentagon, you divide the perimeter by 5, and then use the formula for a regular pentagon, to calculate the base.

Surface area of a pyramid?

(1/2 B)h another way is Lateral area + base area. Lateral area is 1/2 perimeter*slant height. You use this if you dont know the height but know the slant. or if you just like to do it this way
