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!

• Math -

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.
