surface area & volume

posted by .

How can I find the surface area and volume of a hexagonal prism if I don't know the height, only apothem and one side of the base?
Thank you!

  • surface area & volume -

    as you recall, the area of a regular polygon is 1/2 the product of the apothem and the perimeter.

    That help?

    How about this: one side of a hexagon is 1/6 the perimeter.

  • surface area & volume -

    Apothem=6sqrt3
    side=12

    SA=2B+ph

    SA=748.25+72h

    is that correct?

    i just don't understand how to figure out the height..

    well, you do have a problem. Unless they give you the height of the prism, you're stuck.

    It's like asking for the area of a rectangle if they only give you the length.

    The prism is a 3D figure, and they have only given you the information on the base.
