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

Find the area of each face separately and then add them together for the total surface area.

2*area of triangular faces + perimeter of triangle*length of prism (not prisim).

The surface area of a cylinder prism has round shape and the surface of a rectangular prism has a square shape.

The surface area of a prism is the two bases and all the sides A = 2 *area of base + Perimeter of base * Height of prism.

You cannot.

Squared. When you find surface area, you are only finding the area of the shapes that make up the three-denominational shape.

It is not possible. For example, the prism could be tall and thin, or short and thick, and either way have the same surface area.
