I would greatly appreciate any help I can get with this problem. I need to find the volume of a right triangular prism. The sides of the triangles measure 2cm and the length of the prism is 10cm. I found the surface area to be 64sq cm...is this correct? And can I somehow use that info to help find the volume? Thank you!

Hi Ms. Sue! Although I do appreciate your help I am still having trouble with this problem because I am confused about how to find the height of the triangles. I did notice I mistakingly wrote that I was working with right triangles, they are equilateral.

Again, Thank you very much for your help.
