Volume and Surface Area Trapezoidal Prism

In this video you will learn how to find the volume and surface area of a trapezoidal prism.

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
