I know how to find the surface area of a rectangular prism but, I am not sure when given the coordinates of 4 feet by 6 feet by 8 feet which is which? For example: height, width, length? I don't know which way it goes?
Thank You very much for any help you can give me.
It doesn't make any difference.
The surface area consists of a top, bottom, and four sides.
2(4 * 6) + 2(6 * 8) + 2(4 * 8) =
Thank You Ms. Sue - you have been a great help as always.
