    Find the area of each side and add together... that's surface area I'm having a brain fart haha What is it you want to find?

    perimeter of the base times height of the prism + 2Base = Total Area

    Well the 2B part is easy. 2(area of the triangles)

    Area of Triangle : 1/2 times 9 "correct" ?

    1/2 time base of the triangle times the height of the triangle. Because you are only given the base, you need to find the height.

    And to find the height we use pythag theorem correct?

    So your new base would be 1.5 and the hypo would still be 3, yep

  19. Dallasb22

    So the height would be a^2?

    c= 3, b=1.5, and yep a= a

    so when you plug into pythag, you would get that

    So i find the area of the triangle and multiply it by 2 Then i add ?

    add that to the (perimeter of the base x height), which would be (3+3+3)(6)

    Area of Triangle = 1.5√6.75 correct?

    btw, people would write \[\sqrt{6.75} \] as \[ \frac{3 \sqrt{3}}{2}\]

    So it would be 4.5√3 / 2 @phi ?

    generally you don't mix decimals and fractions i.e. 4.5/2 If you have a multiple choice you probably would see the answer as a pure fraction \[ \frac{4}{9}\sqrt{3} \]

    double that for the other triangle now you have 3 faces that all look the same size 3x6 3 faces each 18 = 54 plus the two triangles 8/9 sqrt(3)
