# Surface Area of Four Sides

Think about the four faces (sides) of the two paper prisms.

- Is the total surface area of these four faces the same or different for the two prisms?
- If it is different, which prism has the greater surface area?

## Hint:

- What did you start with to form each prism?
- What is the area of each piece of paper? Have these areas changed?
