You need to find the area of each two dimensional surface on the figure. Do you have a specific figure in mind?

NO. This is the way to get the volume of a prism, not the surface area of any three-dimensional figure. To find the surface area of a three-dimensional figure, you must find the area of each of its faces and then add the side-areas together.

The answer is surface area.

Its total surface area.

TRUE: To find the surface area of a three dimensional figure, you must find the area of each of its faces and then add them together.

Surface area concerns a 3-dimensional figure such as a cube or sphere. Area concerns a 2-dimensional figure such as a square or circle.

False.To find the surface area of a three-dimensional figure, find the area of the faces and add them together.

... face and add them together.

The term area is generally reserved for a two-dimensional polygon, but surface area is the term of the area of the different surfaces on a three-dimensional figure---the faces on the object. So no, they are not the same.

The surface area of the 3-D figure will be the total of the areas of the 2-D figures.

surface area is the like the area of the outside of a 3 dimensional figure, area is the measure of what is inside a 2 dimensional
