Surface Area and Volume

This week of math class, I’ve learned how to find the volume and the surface area of prisms, cones, pyramids and spheres, as well as learned some new formulas that I can use.


Right here  I am looking for the volume and surface area of a prism. In this example, I needed to use Pythagorean Theorem because the height length was not given to find the area of the triangular base.The idea of Surface Area for prisms is to add all the areas of the surfaces/faces.


The most challenging part about learning this lesson was finding the Surface Area because it requires a lot of steps and you can accidentally make a small mistake which changes the answer completely.
