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

- gabbyalicorn

can you tell me what the surface area is again, please. :3

Watch that... That should help you. :)

- gabbyalicorn

Thanks.

- jabez177

No problem! :)

- jabez177

I can't watch that because I still have my Semester assessment to do. I'm working on it right now...

- gabbyalicorn

Oh, i'm so sorry to disturb you. :( I will try my best to do this from what you have given me, i really appreciate your help, so much.

- jabez177

Sure! You're not disturbing me though. I love helping people! :)

- gabbyalicorn

Okay. :)

- jabez177

What's the formula? Maybe I can try and help.

- gabbyalicorn

Hope this kind of helps, i took a screenshot of the link you gave me.

OKAY! Got it!

- gabbyalicorn

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|

- gabbyalicorn

while your looking at that ill do the first long and slend rectangle

- gabbyalicorn

@jabez177

- jabez177

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

- gabbyalicorn

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

- gabbyalicorn

|dw:1433397865916:dw|

- gabbyalicorn

Yeah, i don't know if i did this right.

omg my brains are fried

@pooja195

- Agl202

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

- gabbyalicorn

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?

- Agl202

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

- Agl202

A is bigger then B in surface area

- Agl202

So what do u think?

- gabbyalicorn

B?

- gabbyalicorn

B seems like what you are describing

- Agl202

Yes, Good Job! :D

- gabbyalicorn

Thank you! So much! I really do hope your answer is correct, i am so tired and my brain is so exausted that i cannot even think. Thanks again! :)

- Agl202

K, tell me what u get!

- gabbyalicorn

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 :)
