In this lesson we are going to go over the surface area of prisms and cylinders. First, we'll talk about prisms: prisms are solids with two bases that are both parallel and congruent. You'll learn more about the bases, the lateral faces and lateral edges, and the altitude of a prism. There are two types of prisms - right and oblique. You'll also learn how to calculate the lateral area and the surface area of a prism. Cylinders have two bases that are parallel and congruent circles. You'll learn how to find their lateral and surface area.
*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
