The total surface area of the rectangular box shown below is the sum of the
areas of the 6 sides. What is the box's total surface area, in square inches?
F. 12
G. 16
H. 20
J. 24
K. 32
The correct answer is K.
Explanation:
The top and bottom are 2 by 2 so each has area 4, so 2(4) = 8.
The front and back are 2 by 3 so each has area 6, so 2(6) = 12.
The sides are 2 by 3 so each has area 6, so 2(6) = 12.
The total surface area is 8 + 12 + 12 = 32.
