A right prism has a polygonal base with n sides. Each side has a length of 5 in. The altitude of the prism is 20 in.

If the base had n+1 sides, each still having a side of length 5 in, by how much, in square inches, would the lateral area of the prism increase by? Express your answer as a number only.

I would be mighty grateful! Thanks...sz

Al = Ph = (5(n+1)) * 20 = (5n+5)*20 =

(100n + 100) in^2.

Amt. Increased=(100n+100) -100n = 100 in^2.
