Are we supposed to assume that the surface area will always be the same? What is meant by "base, x"? What is the FULL TEXT of the exercise? (We can't see your book. As mentioned in previous threads (http://www.freemathhelp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7059), you need to tell us what they've given you to work with.)
