i have a right hexagonal prism

and i need to find the SA and the volume for it

what formula do i use?

a regualr prism formula?

thanks

my test is tomorrow in the morning

Please don't bump your post. People will help if they can

The Volume is the area of the base multiplied by the height

The area of a Regular hexagon(all sides and angles equal) with side length l is

The surface area is given by the formula

where l is the side length of the hexagon and h is the height.

I hope this helps

Good luck. - May 16th 2008, 07:58 AMSoroban

**not**include such a sloppy question . . .

We know nothing about the hexagon.

We must be given its perimeter , and its area

. . (or be given enough information so we can find and .)

The height is perpendicular to the two hexagonal bases.

The surface area consists of the top and bottom: .

. . and the lateral area: .

Therefore, the total surface area is: .

The volume is (area of base) × (height): .
