The formula for the surface area of a cube is 6 * a2, where "a" is equal to the length of any of the sides. The volume can be calculated with the formula a3, where "a" is again equ...
The formula for finding the surface area of a cube is 6A^2.
A is the length of one side of the cube.
cube = a<sup>3</sup>. rectangular prism = a b c. irregular prism = b h. cylinder = b h = [pi] r<sup>2</sup>
h. pyramid = (1/3) b h ... (total area) = perimeter(b) L + 2b. sphere = 4 [pi] r<sup>2</sup>.
(a is the length of the side of each edge of the cube). In words, the surface area of
a cube is the area of the six squares that cover it.
