What is area?

  • Area is the amount of space inside the boundary.

  • Area is measured in square units.

  • Area of Rectangle or Square = Length x Width

  • Area of Triangle = Base x Height / 2

  • Area of Parallelogram = Base x Height

What is Surface Area?

  • Surface Area is a three-dimensional shape is a solid shape that has height and depth.

  • Surface Area is measured 2(LxW)+2(LxW)+2(LxW)

  • Surface Area of Rectangular Prism Length x Width x height
