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
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
i have a question..how come u multiplied 24 by 9
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
First write down the general formula of the SA of the prism which is :\[SA = (bh) + \S1 + \S2 + \S3(H)\] lol okay
