Surface area of the triangle x the length of the prism.

The cross section area times the height (or length depending on how you look at it). What is the area of the pentagon? how high/long is the prism?

First you find the area of the surface and then you multiply that by the height of the prism. Example if the surface area is 6cm and the height is 5cm then the volume is 6 time 5 cm cubed. So 30cm Cubed. All volume is measured in cubic cm or m . Cool.

1/2*p*w^2*l

A prism is a 3-dimensional figure, which has a volume, so I presume you mean surface area. The simple answer is you find the area of each face (both pentagons and all 5 parallelograms), and then add them together. If you don't know how to find the area of one or more of the faces, that is a separate question.

Do you multiply the area

Do you multiply the area

surface area of a rectangular prism is the formula: 2lw+2wh+2lh

You will need to find the surface area of each face and add them together.

To find the surface area of an equilateral triangular prism you take the area of the rectangular sides and the triangular bases and add them up and your done.

The Surface area of a triangle = 0.5*base*height The volume of a prism = area of its cross-section*length
