What makes this question tricky to answer is the understanding of the terms. Were the correct terms used in the question, and does the question poster and answer contributor have the same understanding of those terms? Having said that, here goes. A prism is a polyhedron with at least two congruent parallel faces. They are called the bases. The other faces (the "lateral faces") are parallelograms that are formed by lines that connect the corresponding vertices of the two bases. A quadrangular prism has a quadrangular base (such as a rectangle). If the base is some sort of regular polygon, it's called a regular prism. The lateral area of a prism is defined as the total area of the lateral faces. To calculate the lateral area, you multiply the length of an edge by the perimeter of the face that is perpendicular (at right angles to) to that edge. So, assuming the height, 4 cm in this case, is perpendicular to the perimeter, 16 cm, we calculate the lateral area to be 4 x 16 or 64 square centimeters or 64 cm2.
Lateral Area=Perimeter of the base * height perimeter=20 height=6 so, Lateral Area=20 * 6 Lateral Area=120cm
A = 2AB + AL AB = area of the base AL = lateral area = Perimeter X height
LA = 1/2psnewtest3
L=PH L=PH Lateral Area= (Perimeter of the base)(the height of the figure)
1/2 times the perimeter of the base times slant height
The lateral area [L] of a right prism with base perimeter [P] and height [h] is L=Ph.
Probably you meant to ask what is the lateral area of a hexagonal prism. In that case, it would be the perimeter of one of the bases times the height.
1/2(p)(sh) ~which means~ 1/2 x perimeter x slant height slant height= pathagorean theory= c squared= a squared+b squared
it's the same as a rectangle. LA= Ph (Perimeter x's Height)
The lateral area is the perimeter of the hexagon times the height (altitude length) of the prism. Same for any other prism.
Pyramid (regular) Lateral area : pl/2, where l = slant height : p = base perimeter Total area : pl/2+B where B = Base area.
That is called lateral area. The formula for lateral area is: LA=1/2Pxl P stands for perimeter l stands for slant height
LA = ph
It is the lateral area (which is 1/2 the perimeter multiplied by the slant height), plus the area of the base.
It is p*h square units.
The slant height doesn't help you get the answer. Apart from the perimeter, you would need SOME other information about the base; either the number of sides, or anything that can help you calculate the number of sides. For example, if the base is a regular pentagon, you divide the perimeter by 5, and then use the formula for a regular pentagon, to calculate the base.
Total surface area= 1/2 times the perimeter of the base times the slant height plus the area of the base Lateral surface area= 1/2 times the perimeter times the slant height
(1/2 B)h another way is Lateral area + base area. Lateral area is 1/2 perimeter*slant height. You use this if you dont know the height but know the slant. or if you just like to do it this way
