    The prism is made up of two triangular and three rectangular sides, find the area of each side and add them up Surface = 2b + Ph (b is the area of the base P is the perimeter of the base) OR Surface Area= 1/2(B x h)(2) + (s1+s2+s3)h OR Surface Area= (B x h) + (s1+s2+s3)h B= Base. H= Height. s1, s2, s3= Basically the perimeter of the base. Remember: the base of a triangular prism is not always on the bottom. Hope this helps? :)
