Hello, shilo!

i have a right hexagonal prism,

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

what formula do i use? I assume your exam will **not** include such a sloppy question . . .

Code:

* - *
* A *
| * - * |
| | | |
| | | | h
| | | |
| | | |
* | | *
* - *

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): .
