In this video, we learn how to find the surface area of a prism using a specific example. First you will need to find the base and height of your prism. If the base edge is 6 and the height is 8 you will do the equation Area= 1/2 bh. Doing this math out on your calculator, you will get the answer of 12.39. This is what the size of each triangle in the prism is going to be. The area of one pentagon (or the base) is 61.92 inches squared. If you need help with this, you can try drawing the picture out to get a better idea of what you are multiplying and looking for.
