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.

The surface are of a right prism is equal to twice the area of its base plus the perimeter of the base multiplied with the height of the prism. The volume can be determined by multiplying the Area of the base by the height of the prism.

No, there are TWO bases.

okay, to find the base of a triangular prism you just b = 2a/h (base = 2 * area/height)

Volume of rectangular prism = area of base x height

The area of such a prism is Bh/3, where B is the base area, and h is the height (perpendicular to the plane that contains the base area).The area of such a prism is Bh/3, where B is the base area, and h is the height (perpendicular to the plane that contains the base area).The area of such a prism is Bh/3, where B is the base area, and h is the height (perpendicular to the plane that contains the base area).The area of such a prism is Bh/3, where B is the base area, and h is the height (perpendicular to the plane that contains the base area).

The surface area of a prism = 2 × area of base + perimeter of base × H

Oh, isn't that just lovely? To find the base area of a rectangular prism, all you need to do is multiply the length and width of the base together. Just imagine it like painting a beautiful landscape, each stroke working together to create something wonderful. You're doing great, keep up the good work!

The base of a rectangular prism is a rectangle. The area of a rectangle is length times width.

The surface area of a right prism is the sum of the areas of all its faces. The formula for calculating the surface area of a right prism is 2 × (base area) + (lateral area), where the base area is the area of the base shape and the lateral area is the sum of the areas of the remaining faces. The lateral area can also be calculated by multiplying the perimeter of the base shape by the height of the prism.

No, there are TWO bases.

To find the volume of a triangular prism, find the area of one of the triangles (base of the prism) first (base x height divided by 2). When you have the area of the triangle, then multiply the area of the triangle by the height of the prism, *not the height of the base.

It is width*length

It is width*length

Yes.
