Angle between lateral faces on a rectangular pyramid

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone had any idea how to solve this problem:

What is the angle between lateral faces of a rectangular pyramid with length a, width b, and height h, in terms of a, b and h?

Any responses are much appreciated.

I'm not sure if I get this questions correctly, but if you are talking about the angle between the lateral faces from each other on a rectangular pyramid. Wouldn't they always be 90 degrees apart from one another, as the pyramid maintains its form as it comes to a point.
