If the base is a rectangle, use the formula for the area of a rectangle.
Although there is a separate formula for it, yes, a cube is technically a rectangular prism, and you can use the rectangular prism's formula, because a rectangle is defined as a quadrilateral with four right angles, which a square is.
It depends on the size of the triangular prism, but depending on the side of the prism you use the triangle area formula to find it or the rectangle area formula to find it.
does a rectangle prism have 6 sides
Although it appears to be a rectangle technically it is a rectangular prism
No. A rectangle is a 2D shape, while a prism is a 3D figure.
A prism. A rectangle is a special kind of prism. It is called a cuboid.
The formula for a rectangle is height x width (A=ab)Since you said surface area, I'm pretty sure that you might mean a rectangular prism. To get this, you would need to find the area of each "rectangle side". To do this, you use the first formula, using height (a), width (b), and depth (c). The formula for theSurface Area of a Rectangular Prism = 2ab + 2bc + 2ac
A prism is a 3-dimensional object, a rectangle is a 2-dimensional object.
a 3-d rectangle A rectangular prism is a rectangle like in 3-d. a rectangular prisim is a recangle that is 3D a rectangular prism is a rectangle but in 3-d
Technically it is a rectangular prism.
