How do you find the surface area of Prisms and cylinders? The stuff in my math workbook does not help me like at all! Please Help!

any explanation given here will probably be less informative than what you already have, as we cannot post diagrams.
Do a web search on prism cylinder surface area and you will find a variety of explanations using different viewpoints.
Although, I think you may need some personal tutoring if you cannot gain any insight from what must surely be a competent explanation in your text.
