If it is a right prism, the lateral surface area is the perimeter of the base times the height. That goes for any right prisms, rectangular or otherwise. If it is oblique, then we need more information. If all of the lateral faces are rectangular, then it is a right prism and you have no problem

i guess it depends on how you define lateral as to what sides are included, i guess the longest length is the depth, and is th elength of each rectangle
