## Surface area of Triangular Prism Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
surface_area = (Base*Height)+(2*Length*Side)+(Length*Base)
SA = (b*h)+(2*L*S)+(L*b)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Base - The base is the lowest part or edge of something, especially the part on which it rests or is supported. (Measured in Meter)
Height - Height is the distance between the lowest and highest points of a person standing upright. (Measured in Meter)
Length - Length is the measurement or extent of something from end to end. (Measured in Meter)
Side - The side is an upright or sloping surface of a structure or object that is not the top or bottom and generally not the front or back. (Measured in Meter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Base: 2 Meter --> 2 Meter No Conversion Required
Height: 12 Meter --> 12 Meter No Conversion Required
Length: 3 Meter --> 3 Meter No Conversion Required
Side: 9 Meter --> 9 Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
SA = (b*h)+(2*L*S)+(L*b) --> (2*12)+(2*3*9)+(3*2)
Evaluating ... ...
SA = 84
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
84 Square Meter --> No Conversion Required
84 Square Meter <-- Surface Area

## What makes a triangular prism unique?

A triangular prism is a polyhedron, (three-dimensional shape) made up of two triangular bases and three rectangular sides. Like other Prisms, the two bases here are parallel and congruent to each other. It has 5 faces, 6 vertices and 9 edges in total. Triangular Prism is a pentahedron and has nine distinct nets.

## What defines a prism?

A transparent solid body, often having triangular bases, used for dispersing light into a spectrum or for reflecting rays of light. Geometry. a solid having bases or ends that are parallel, congruent polygons and sides that are parallelograms.
