Triangular prism

Calculate the surface of a triangular prism with the base of an equilateral triangle with a side length of 7.5 cm and a corresponding height of 6.5 cm. Prism height is 15cm.

Correct result:

S =  386.25 cm2


a=7.5 cm v=6.5 cm h=15 cm  S1=a v2=7.5 6.52=1958=24.375 cm2 o=3 a=3 7.5=452=22.5 cm  S=2 S1+o h=2 24.375+22.5 15=15454=15454 cm2=386.25 cm2
