**Properties of a trapezoidal prism**

A trapezoidal prism is a three-dimensional figure.

It is made up of two trapezoids on opposite faces connected by 4 rectangles.

It has eight vertices, six faces, and 12 edges.

The formula for volume = 1/2height(base 1 + base 2) x height of trapezoid

Surface Area = Lateral Area + 2 Base area
