It depends on the prism. Is it a triangular prism, a rectangular prism, a pentagonal prism... etc..

Volume = area of pentagon x length of prism.

Area of Base x Height

Whatever the net, the answer is the same area as that of the net.

Formula: S = 2B + L

surface area prism = 2 × area end + total area side = 2 × area end + perimeter end × length of prism The information given to you will allow you to work out the area of one pentagonal end, and the perimeter of the pentagonal end.

The fact that it's a prism has nothing to do with the area of the base. See the attached Related Link for your formula.

Volume = (base area) x height.

Area of pentagon * length of prism.

LxWx2

There is no single formula. The answer depends on what the formula is for: the volume, surface area, numbers of faces, edges, vertices and so on. And since you have not bothered to provide that crucial bit of information, I cannot provide a more useful answer.

There must be a typo in this question, "Why does the formula for finding the surface area of arectangular prism is helpful?" What does that even mean?

Surface Area = 2 × Base Area + Base Perimeter × Length

yes. base area x height lxwxh No. Above answer gives volume not surface area. Surface area formula will differ depending on type of prism.

Sum of the surface areas or each of its seven faces. Only the two pentagonal bases should have equal areas; there is no need for any of the other faces to have equal areas.

S = 2B + Ph

S=2B+Ph
