The surface area of the prism is the sum of all its surfaces.
The top and bottom have the same shape, namely a right triangle with sides 6,8 and 10. So that should not cause difficulties since the base and height of these two triangles are 6 and 8 respectively.
There are three vertical faces each of height 2 and width equal to the side length (6,8,10) of the base triangle. So the area of these three rectangular faces must be added to complete the area calculation.
