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

Nope - all surfaces are flat on a rectangular prism.

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.

Area of a rectangular prism = 2lw + 2lh + 2wh, where l is length, w is width, and h is height.

It depends on the size of the triangular prism, but depending on the side of the prism you use the triangle area formula to find it or the rectangle area formula to find it.

if 3x4 is dimension of rectangle and 5 is the altitude, then, 49.035 sq. units is its surface area

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

Three: 1) The area of the cross-sectional rectangle end 2) The area of the rectangle joining the longer side of the cross-sectional rectangular ends 3) The area of the rectangle joining the shorter side of the cross-sectional rectangular ends Then the surface area of the rectangular prism is twice the sum of these three areas.

Volume of a rectangular prism= LengthXWidthXHeight Area of a Rectangle= LengthXWidth Area of a Trapezoid= (Bottom+Top)/2)XHeight

Surface area of the triangle x the length of the prism.

find the area of triangles(reflecting surfaces) and also the area of rectangle or square(base)and find the sum of both.

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

Nope - all surfaces are flat on a rectangular prism.

The cross-section of a prism is the same - it is the same as the shape of the two parallel "bases"; this cross-section can be any shape, not necessarily a rectangle. Each side of a prism is rectangular, so knowing the formula for a rectangle will help you along to finding the surface area of the prism by helping you to calculate the area of the sides; however, you will still need to be able to calculate the area of the bases (unless it is given to you), for which knowing the area of a rectangle may not (usually will not) help.

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.
