  1. The area of a rhombus is 1/2 the product of the diagonals.

    The top and bottom of your prism are rhombuses with areas of 60 sqrt3 ft^2, EACH.

    The four rectangular sides of the prism each have areas of
    (height)*[(a/2)^2 + (b/2)^2]
    where a and b are the rhombus diagonal lengths. The term in brackets is the rhombus side length, and equals 12 feet in this case.
