# Find the Surface Area From the Base

Each drawing shows the base of a prism. Find the surface area of each prism using the information in the drawings and the height information that follows. Draw the net of each prism first.

- The triangular prism has a height of 10 cm.
- The hexagonal prism has a height of 5 cm.

## Hint:

- What does the perimeter of the base indicate about the lateral surface?
- What do all right prisms have in common in terms of describing the surface area?
