    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

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

    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

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