Evaluate the volume and surface area of a rectangular solid:
Calculate the volume & surface area of a rectangular solid along with a = 3", b = 4", & c = 5".
Solution:
V = (a)(b)(c) SA = 2(ab + ac + bc)
V = (3)(4)(5) SA = 2[(3)(4) + (3)(5) + (4)(5)]
V = (12)(5) SA = 2[12 + 15 + 20]
V = 60 cubic inches SA = 2[47]
SA = 94 square inches
