# Surface Area of Six Sides

Suppose that you added a top and bottom to each prism.

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

## Hint:

- What type of figure (shape) forms the top of the prism? What type of figure forms the bottom of the prism?
- How can you find the area of these figures?
