It is a rectangular based pyramid

You find the area of the base and then find the area of one triangle. Multiply that one triangle by 4 and then add the base. The above is correct for a triangular pyramid NOT a triangilar prism. A triangular prism has two triangular ends and three rectangular faces. The rectangular faces need no be the same shape, but if they are, So Area = 2*area of triangular ends + 3*area of rectangular faces If not, you'll just have to calculate each area separately and add them.
