You will need to find the surface area of each face and add them together.

It is not possible. For example, the prism could be tall and thin, or short and thick, and either way have the same surface area.

You can find the exact surface area for all of those shapes.

Assume that a = apothem length of the triangular prism, b = base length of the triangular prism, and h = height of the triangular prism. The formulas to find the surface area is SA = ab + 3bh.

the volume of a trapezoidal prism is equal to the height times the base area of the trapezoid. First you find the area of trapezoid h(a+b)/2 h is the height of the trapezoid, not the height of the prism a is the length of the top b is the length of the bottom Then you find the volume of the trapezoidal prism with this formula H*h(a+b)/2 H is the height of the prism. Multiply H by the area of the trapezoid that you found in step one.
