Jenna's BOB

What i know all about surface area and the volume of a cube and rectangular prism:

Surface Area (SA): The extent of a 2-dimensional surface enclosed within a boundary.
Volume (V): The amount of space that and object or substance occupies.

To find out the surface area, first you have to make it into a net.
Find out the area of the top and bottom (L x W)
Find out the area of the front and back (H x L)
Find out the area of the sides (H x W)

To find out the Volume, you use the formula L x W x H

L = 5cm

W = 3cm
H = 10cm
- 5cm x 3cm x 10cm
V = 150 cubic cm
