# Right triangular prism

We have cuboid with a base and dimensions of 12 cm and 5 cm and height of 4 cm. The tablecloth cut it into two identical triangular prisms with right triangular bases. The surface of the created prisms was painted with color. Calculate the surface area of one of these two triangular prisms.

Result

S =  180 cm2
