Surface Area- is the sum of all the areas of all the shapes that cover the surface of an object.

RECTANGULAR PRISM

This is how a rectangular prism is labelled:

This is how a rectangular prism is labelled:

The Net:

SOLVING FOR THE SURFACE AREA:Rectangular Prism

FORMULA:SA= 2(lxw)+2(hxl)+2(hxw)

*when writng the final answer for surface area the measuring unit is in squared

CUBE

a cube has 6 equal sides

a cube has 6 equal sides

The Net:

FINDING FOR THE SURFACE AREA:Cube

-since a cube has 6 equal sides its easier to solve for its surafce area

FORMULA:SA=area of a side x 6

(s squared)*s stands for:side

*I multiplied it by 6 because a cube has 6 equal sides

Example:

(s squared)*s stands for:side

*I multiplied it by 6 because a cube has 6 equal sides

Example:

VOLUMES

Volume- is the number of cubes needed to fill in the shape.

SOLVING FOR THE VOLUME OF A CUBE:

FORMULA: V=l x w x h

or V= area of the base x h

Example:
