    Basically calculate the surface area of both of the prisms then calculate the volume of both of them and compare.

    okay, i already finished the surface area for the second rectangle (yes i started with the second one) i dont know if it is right beacause the B is kind of messing me up but yeah|dw:1433397479093:dw|

    She multiplied it by 2 because there are two pares of the same squares or rectangles.

    right that were the same on the other sides but B is just making it harder

    figure the surface area and volumes for each figure; then compare.

    when comparing do we subtract? or divide for this type of problem. and also so we add the surface area and volume up for each rectangle then subtract?

    the volumes are equal so its a toss between a and b. i get 112 for A and 104 for B

    Well, I literary just got the results back and it was C The surface area of A is greater than the surface area of B. But, ya know what thank you for trying :)
