Lateral Area=Perimeter of the base * height perimeter=20 height=6 so, Lateral Area=20 * 6 Lateral Area=120cm

1/2 times the perimeter of the base times slant height

LA=1/2ps

it's the same as a rectangle. LA= Ph (Perimeter x's Height)

LA = ph

1/2 times the perimeter of the base times slant height

Probably you meant to ask what is the lateral area of a hexagonal prism. In that case, it would be the perimeter of one of the bases times the height.

The lateral area [L] of a right prism with base perimeter [P] and height [h] is L=Ph.

it's the same as a rectangle. LA= Ph (Perimeter x's Height)

The lateral area is the perimeter of the hexagon times the height (altitude length) of the prism. Same for any other prism.

LA=ph

LA=ph

LA = ph

It is the lateral area (which is 1/2 the perimeter multiplied by the slant height), plus the area of the base.
