Calculating Surface Area
To help us see all six faces of a rectangular
prism, mathematicians sometimes unfold the
box to see a drawing called a net.

When a box is unfolded so you can see all the
sides as a flat pattern, this is called it’s net.

Need a hint? Write the formulas for the front, side 1, and the top.
Then write the formulas for the back, side 2, and the bottom.

Take a shot at solving some of
the problems on the class
work.
I’ll time you!
Class work #1
SA = 2(L x H) + 2(W x H) + 2(L x W)
SA = 2( 8 x 5 ) + 2( 4 x 5 ) + 2( 8 x 4 )
SA = 2 (40 cm2) + 2( 20 cm2) + 2( 32 cm2)
SA = 80 cm2
+ 40 cm2
+ 64 cm2
SA = 184 cm2
Back to Solutions
Class work #2
SA = 2(L x H) + 2(W x H) + 2(L x W)
SA = 2( 12 x 4 ) + 2( 3 x 4 ) + 2( 12 x 3 )
SA = 2 (48 in2) + 2( 12 in2) + 2( 36 in2)
SA = 96 in2
+ 24 in2
+ 72 in2
SA = 192 in2
