Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically calculate the surface area of both of the prisms then calculate the volume of both of them and compare.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, 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 yeahdw:1433397479093:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0while your looking at that ill do the first long and slend rectangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0She multiplied it by 2 because there are two pares of the same squares or rectangles.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1figure the surface area and volumes for each figure; then compare.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the volumes are equal so its a toss between a and b. i get 112 for A and 104 for B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank 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! :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, 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 :)
