# How to Calculate the Surface Area of a Triangular Prism?

## Question: How to calculate the surface area of a triangular prism?

Surface Area is the measure of the total area that the surface of a particular object occupies

## Answer: We will use the formula bh + l (a+b+c) to calculate the surface area of a triangular prism, where 'b' is the base length of the triangle, 'h' is the height of the triangular prism, 'l' is the distance between the traingular bases and 'a', 'b', 'c' are sides of the triangle

Let's look into the formula and the different parameters involved in calculating the surface area of a triangular prism

## Explanation:

To calculate the surface area of a triangular prism,

We use the formula bh + l (a+b+c)

where, b = base length of triangle

h = height of triangle

l = distance between triangular bases

a, b, c = sides of triangle
