Geometry 6.10 Lateral Surface Area of a Triangular Prism
Calculate the lateral surface area of a triangular prism of sides 13cm., 15cm. and 17cm. and height 25cm. Solution:
Lateral surface area of the prism (A) = p * h
Where p = perimeter of the base and h = height.
Perimeter of the base (p)= 13 + 15 + 17
p = 45cm.
h = 25cm.
Therefore, A = p * h
A = 45 * 25
= 1125 Sq. cm.
