Mariya's BOB

On this post, the BOB is about the Surface Area and the Volume of a Rectangular Prism.The rectangular prism has 3 sides to it - the length, the height and the width. There are two ways to draw a rectangular prism - the net and 3 dimensional way.

To get the surface area, you have to get the area of each side.

Area of top and bottom : 2(length x width)

Area of front and back : 2(height x length)

Area of both sides : 2(height x width)

Surface Area = 2(LxW) + 2(HxL) + 2(HxW)

Here is an example:
