A triangular prism and two nets are shown:

 A right triangular prism is shown with two nets. The triangular base of the prism has height 5 inches, base 12 inches, and hypotenuse 13 inches. The length of the prism is 15 inches. Net A has 3 rectangles having dimensions 5 by 15, 15 by 12, and 15 by 13, and two triangles having legs 5 inches and 12 inches. Net B has 3 rectangles having dimensions 5 by 13, 13 by 12, and 13 by 15, and two triangles having legs 5 inches and 12 inches.

Which is the correct net of the prism and what is the surface area of the prism?

 

PLEASE EXPLAIN

To calculate the surface area is basicall calculating area all that is neccessary is for you too look where the values line up find the area's and add them I will help you get in to the right direction though I will Identify for you what you need to multiply You should be becoming familar with how to do this.

 

 

Right triangle \(5 * 12 = area\) 

 

Right triangle \(5 * 12 = area\)

 

Rectangle that slants along the hypnotuse \(13 * 15 = area\) 

 

Rectangle under the prism \(12 * 15 = area\) 

 

Rectangle in the back of the prism \(5 * 15 = area\) 

 

 

All you have to do is add products of these problems and tell me what you get.....

For the second part I will give you a hint: Look at the hyptoptuse on the right triangles how long is the rectangle on there???

Well for your second question it would be 

 

15*13= 195

Ha 9 just relized the triangles are supposed to be times once and then divided by 1/2 is that what I am supposed to do??
