Where “h” is the height of the square pyramid and “x” is the length of one side of the base.

According to the data given, you know that:

Therefore, you can subsitute these values into the formula:

Now, you need to solve for the “x” to calculate the length of one side of the square base of that pyramid.

You get that this is:
