you need measurements to figure out surface area. the simplest way to figure out the whole area of a dodecahedron is to find the surface area of one pentagon, then multiply by 12 (the number of sides of a dodecahedron)

a polygon

Cone

It is the area of its foot-print.

Area is used to find the amount of square units insided of a 1- dimensional figure. The formula is: Length x Width= area Surface is quite different. Think of it this way. You have a cardboard box. If you cut each seam of the box and found the area of each section, added them together, you would have the surface area. The formula is: (Length x width x 2)+(width x height x 2)+(height x length x 2)= Surface area

Yeah, figure out the pattern before just going on them.

That depends on the figure whose surface area and volume you're finding. You could try a Google search for "volume of [figure name]" or "surface area of [figure name]".

It is often referred to as a "net." In higher-level mathematics, especially topology, the word "surface" can be used.

You need to find the area of each two dimensional surface on the figure. Do you have a specific figure in mind?

The flat surface of a solid figure is called a face. For example, a rectangular prism has 6 flat surfaces and therefore 6 faces.

Well it matters if you put it in a 3-dimensional or a 2-dimensional figure because if you turn it into a 3-dimensional figure the the surface would have a flat surface with volume and area.If you draw a quad in 2-D then the figure you draw is the surface.

A plane figure.
