A cuboid is a hexahedron. That is a solid face with six faces. More specifically, all six faces of a cuboid are rectangular.

The total surface area of a cuboid with sides of length A, B and C is 2*(AB + BC + CA) sq units.

### How do you find the surface area of a cuboid?

The surface area is the total area of all the faces.
For a cuboid, all these faces will be rectangular.
Example:
Find the surface area of a 2 x 4 x 5 cm cuboid.
The area of the faces will be:
2 x 4 = 8 cm2
2 x 5 = 10 cm2
4 x 5 =20 cm2
Adding these up give an area of 38 cm2.
However we now need to multiply our answer by 2 as there are
exactly two of each face.

### How would you work out the total surface area of a cube or a cuboid?

The cube is a special case of the cuboid (where length = breadth
= height), so we will only consider the total surface area of a
cuboid.
Let the cuboid have length l, breadth b and height h.
Then the surface area of the cuboid consists of 2 l x b
rectangles, 2 b x h rectangles, and 2 l x h rectangles.
As such, the total surface area is 2bl + 2bh + 2lh = 2(bl +
bh + lh).
