# Solve for Surface Area of Triangular Prism Worksheet

## 8 problems

A triangular prism is a type of prism that has 6 vertices, 9 edges, and 5 faces. The total surface area of a triangular prism is the sum of all the areas of the faces of the prism. A triangular prism consists of two triangular faces and three rectangular faces. Lateral faces are rectangular ones and bases are triangular faces.

## Teaching Surface Area of a Triangular Prism Easily

• Firstly, find the area of the base and top triangles using the area of triangle formula.

• Then, find the lateral surface area. Multiply the length of the prism by the perimeter.

• Lastly, add all the areas together to get an appropriate result.

Here is an example to solve a question on the surface area of a triangular prism. Let’s look at the given example mentioned below to understand more about the concept of the surface area of a triangular prism.

Q. Find the total surface area of a triangular prism which has a base area of 50 units, a base perimeter of 30 units, and the length of the prism is 7 units.

Step 1: Write down all the units given.

So,

Base area = 50 units.

Base perimeter = 30 units.

Length of Prism = 7 units.

Step 2: Convert the units into the same measurement, if required.

Step 3: Use the Surface area formula for a triangular prism.

(Perimeter of the base × Length of the prism ) + (2 × Base Area)

(30 * 7 ) + 2 *50 = 210 + 100

210 + 100 = 310 square units.
