Especially | tet (n=3, d=1) squippy (n=4, d=1) peppy (n=5, d=1) stappy (n=5, d=2) hippy (n=6, d=1) |
The height formula given below shows that only 2 < n/d < 6 is possible. The maximal height would be obtained at n/d = 2 with upright latteral triangles, the other extremal value n/d = 6 would generate a height of zero.
