Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good, so you can see that the object is a triangular prism, specifically here with two identical triangles parallel to each other vertically. notice that the sides of the triprism are all rectangulars. set the outside surface area as S. then S=S1+S2+S3+S4(S1 stands for the area of the bottom triangle, S2, S3, S4 the areas of the front, left and the right sides.)=1/2*ae+ab+db+cb=...(do you still need the answer?)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ya, I just give it as included. So it depends on the full questions. If the container is open, then can just reduce (1/2)ae

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is 6.9 the answer? so we have to multiply by 0.5?
