A truncated pyramid.
I have been trying to solve this one but i simply don't know how to. I asked my teacher about it and he said I should try to use the coefficient of similarity, but still no results. The task:
The bases of a truncated pyramid have the surfaces (areas) of 98cm^2 and 2cm^2. Whats the surface (area) of a section that cuts trough the truncated pyramid and goes trough the center of the truncated pyramid's height and is parallel with the bases.
Every help is welcome!
Thanks in advance.
I have just one question. What is the shape of the base? Is is a square pyramid?
It isn't specified so it can be either one of them but i guess its a triangle in the base.

Anyway thanks a lot for the help!
