This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 21, Unit 3, Grade 7. The surface area formula for a right rectangular prism cannot be applied to a right triangular prism. Why? The formula adds the areas of six rectangular faces. A right triangular prism only has three rectangular faces and also has two triangular faces (bases). The area formula for triangles is the formula for the area of rectangles or parallelograms.
