### Surface Area Scribe Post

-- Rectangular Prism
-- The Net

-- Top && Bottom
area of Top && Bottom = (Lxw)+(Lxw)
= 2 (Lxw)

-- Front && Back

area of Front && Back = (hxL) + (hxL)
= 2 (hxL)

-- Sides

area of the sides = (hxw) + (hxw)
= 2 (hxw)

-- Surface Area :

8+8=
2x8=
2(8)
area = 2(Lxw) + 2(hxL)+2(hxw)

-- Solve Surface Area

h=30cm
L=20cm
w=10cm

400 (2) + 1200(2) + 600(2)
= 2200cm(2)

-- Example Question :

-- The Net (for the example question)

= 2(Lxw)+ 2(hxL) + 2 (hxw)
= 2 (17cm+5cm) + 2(17cm+7cm)+ 2(17cm+5cm)
= 2x35cm(2) + 2x119cm(2)+2x85cm(2)
= 70cm(2) + 238cm(2) + 170cm(2)
=478cm(2)
