The area of a rectangle equals its length times its width (A = l*w), so if you have the area divided by the one of the sides equals the other side (l = A/w; w = A/l )

How do you read dimensions?

When finding area, you need to know the area formula of the specific object and its associated dimensions. For example, if it's a rectangle, then the dimensions are length and width. So, to find the area you need to be given these dimensions and then use the formula length times the width. Different shapes, such as circles, squares, and trapezoids, will have different area formulas.

How can knowing the formula for the area of a rectangle help you find the surface area of a prism?

The cross-section of a prism is the same - it is the same as the shape of the two parallel "bases"; this cross-section can be any shape, not necessarily a rectangle. Each side of a prism is rectangular, so knowing the formula for a rectangle will help you along to finding the surface area of the prism by helping you to calculate the area of the sides; however, you will still need to be able to calculate the area of the bases (unless it is given to you), for which knowing the area of a rectangle may not (usually will not) help.
