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): .
