Worksheet: Lateral and Total Surface Areas of a Prism

In this worksheet, we will practice finding the lateral and total surface areas of some different types of prisms using more than one formula.


Work out the surface area of the prism.


Suppose the length of each edge of an ice cube is 19 centimetres. The cube is then cut horizontally in half into two smaller rectangular prisms. Determine the surface area of one of the two prisms.
