    Cone & Pyramid

    I have a question. If a regular circular cone is inscribed in a regular square pyramid. Would the height and slant height be the same for both cone and pyramid?

    Draw a sketch.

    The black edges belong to the pyramid and the green lines are the slanted heights of the cone and the side faces of the pyramid.
