**Free, printable “Volume and Surface Area of Triangular Prisms Worksheets!”**

Imagine you want to pitch a tent. The amount of space inside the tent to sleep and walk around in is called the volume. The amount of fabric (including the floor) is called the surface area.

Volume = ½ b • h • d, where b is the base of a triangle, h is the height of a triangle, and d is the distance between triangles.

To calculate the surface area of a triangular prism, find the area of each of the 5 faces and add the numbers together. For the 2 triangular faces, use the formula A = ½ b • h. For the rectangular faces use the formula A = b • h.
