To calculate the surface area of the equilateral triangular-based prism, you need to calculate the area of the equilateral triangle and all the other sides of the prism. The total area of all the phases will give the total surface are of an equilateral triangular based prism.

you calculate the area of one side, then multiply it by three.

the defnition of find the surface area of triangular prism and cylinder

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

No. Relative to its volume, the greater the number of sides, the smaller the volume. In the limit, a cylinder (circular prism, with an infinite number of "sides") will have the least surface area.

Assume that a = apothem length of the triangular prism, b = base length of the triangular prism, and h = height of the triangular prism. The formulas to find the surface area is SA = ab + 3bh.

47.88 cm2

Surface area is squared; volume is cubed.

Yes it is possible.

A surface area would be vital for determining volume

False, the prism can be of any length.
