Find the area of a triangular section, 1/2bh, and then multiply by the length of the prism.

Volume = Area of the base X height of prism. This formula works for all prisms, not just triangular prisms. Area of a triangle = height of triangle X 1/2 X base of triangle.

Like all prisms you find the area of one of the triangular faces and then multiply by the height.

There is no way to find perimeter from a 3D figure. However, you can find the perimeter of a side of a triangular prism by using perimeter formulas for a parallelogram or triangle.

You muliply the base times the height of one of the triangles in the trianagular prism (both triangles will be similar, proportional, and equal, and you divide that number by two or multiply that number by 1/2, then you multiply that number times the height or length of one triangle's end to the other triangle's end of the triangular prism to obtain your final volume. The formula is as follows. V=1/2(b*h)(height)
