## Surface Area Formulas

The surface area of a prism is equal to the sum of the areas of its faces. A rectangular prism is made up of 4 rectangle side faces and 2 rectangle cap faces.

Rectangular Prism Surface Area Formula:
2lw + 2lh + 2wh
Where:
l = the length of the rectangular prism
w = the width of the rectangular prism
h = the height of the rectangular prism

## Volume Formulas

Rectangular Prism Volume Formula:
Volume =lwh
Where:
l = the length of the rectangular prism
w = the width of the rectangular prism
h = the height of the rectangular prism

## Vertices, Faces, and Edges

A rectangular prism has 6 faces, 8 vertices, and 12 edges.
