I get the same result as nvidura. There are five views: top view (easy), south, west, north, and east views (harder).

So to calculate the south view vertical number of blocks:

You combine the bottom row with the top row making 101 blocks. Then you combine the 2nd row with 2nd row from the top, this also is 101 blocks (99 + 2). So I drew a small one that started out with three, but it was odd, and it wasn't analogous to 100 on the bottom. Then I redrew four on bottom and realized the number of pairs of 101 would be 50. So that's how it goes.

To compute the top surface area:

If you walk up the pyramid, each step is half a block forward from the next; they overlap. But you don't need to worry about

that if you just look at the whole pyramid from an airplane, and just compute the area of the overall square.

Units:

and you can use 0.63 meters and 0.97 meters right off the bat to make things a little easier.
