what is the surface area of a rectangular prism with the width 4cm lenth 5cm height of 3cm

• math -

There are 6 surface areas, but we need
to calculate only 3 because:

The Front and Back are equal.
The Left and Right are equal.
The Top and Bottom are equal.

So we multiply each calculation by 2:

As = 2(4*3) + 2(5*3) + 2(4*5),
As = 24 + 30 + 40 = 94cm^2.
