## Smiley75 4 years ago Savion and his father pitched a tent taht has the shape of a triangular prism. the tent is covered in fabric on all sides, including both ends, of the prism. the vertical height of the tent is 9 feet. What is the surface area, in square feet, of the tent? a. 16,200 square feet b. 1620 square feet c.1836 square feet d. 216 square feet

i need help

C, 1836 sq feet Calculate the area of the triangle, which is 1/2 x h x b and then calculate the area of each individual side...and then you add it all up

4. laka

1/2 x 9 x 24 = 108 SA = 2(108) + 2(30x15) + 30x24

i have a question..how come u multiplied 24 by 9

6. laka

To find the area of the triangle, you multiply height x base x 1/2 In this case, the height is 9 and the base is 24

nevermind nevermind i got it

8. laka

cool

First write down the general formula of the SA of the prism which is :\[SA = (bh) + \S1 + \S2 + \S3(H)\] lol okay
