Find the lateral area of the prism. Round your answer to the nearest whole number. The bases are the large 13 x 4 rectangles. https://www.connexus.com/content/media/461958-3232011-35122-PM-1691221172/res00000/ppg/examview/S_GEOMB_05_Unit_Test/mc003-1.jpg

    The lateral area would be 13*4- that's for one lateral face, but because this is 3D and there are 2 lateral faces, you's multiply your product by 2

    If those are your only choices, then I'm confused. Wait- is lateral area in your school the same thing as surface area?

    Like if you were going to wrap a box with wrapping paper, would the amount of paper you used be lateral area?

    If so, then it would be 172. But I'm not sure if that's what your teacher means.
