Understanding how to find the surface area of a triangular prism can be simple with these steps:

Step 1: Identify the dimensions of the triangular base (base and height) and the length of the prism.
Step 2: Calculate the area of the triangular base using the formula: (Base * Height) / 2.
Step 3: Determine the perimeter of the triangular base by adding all three sides.
Step 4: Multiply the perimeter by the prism’s length to get the lateral surface area.
Step 5: Sum the areas of the two triangular bases and the lateral area to find the total surface area.
