Example Question #1 : How To Find The Surface Area Of A Prism
The above diagram shows a rectangular solid. The shaded side is a square. In terms of , give the surface area of the box.
A square has four sides of equal length, as seen in the diagram below.
All six sides are rectangles, so their areas are equal to the products of their dimensions:
Top, bottom, front, back (four surfaces):
Left, right (two surfaces):
The total surface area:
