## Texas Go Math Grade 7 Lesson 10.3 Answer Key Lateral and Total Surface Area

Example 1
A net of a rectangular prism is shown. Use the net to find the lateral area and the total surface area of the prism. Each square represents one square inch. The blue regions are the bases, and the green regions are the lateral faces.

Step 1
Find the lateral area of the rectangular prism. There are two 2 in. by 5 in. rectangles, and two 2 in. by 6 in. rectangles.

2 . (2 . 5) = 20 in2
2 . (2 . 6) = 24 in2
The lateral area is 20 + 24 = 44 in2.

Step 2
Find the total surface area of the rectangular prism.
Each base is 5 inches by 6 inches. 2 . (5 . 6) = 60 in2.
The total surface area is 44 + 60 = 104 in2.

Explain how the total surface area of a prism differs from the lateral area.

Use the net to find the lateral area and the total surface area of the triangular prism described by the net.

Find the Lateral area of the triangular prism. We have:
One 4 cm. by 4 cm. rectangle;
One 4 cm. by 5 cm. rectangle;
One 3 cm. by 4 cm. rectangle.
1 . (4 . 4) = 16
1 . (4 . 5) = 20
1 . (3 . 4) = 12
The lateral area is 16 + 20 + 12 = 48 cm2.
Each base is 4 cm. by 3 cm.\
2 . (4 . 3) = 2 . 12 = 24 cm2
The total surfance area is 48 – 24 = 72 cm2.

Example 2
Use the net of this rectangular pyramid to find the lateral area and the total surface area of this pyramid.

Step 1
Find the lateral area of the rectangular pyramid. There are four triangles with base 16 in. and height 17 in. The lateral area is 4 Ã— $$\frac{1}{2}$$(16)(17) = 544 in2.

Step 2
Find the total surface area of the rectangular pyramid.
The area of the base is 16 Ã— 16 = 256 in2.
The total surface area is 544 + 256 = 800 in2.

Question 2.
How many surfaces does a triangular pyramid have? What shape are they?
A triangular pyramid has four surfaces and they have the shape of triangle.

Question 3.
The base and all three faces of a triangular pyramid are equilateral triangles with side lengths of 3 ft. The height of each triangle is 2.6 ft. Use the net to find the lateral area and the total surface area of the triangular pyramid.

Find the lateral area of the triangular pyramid.
We have three equilateral triangles with base 3 ft. and height 17 ft.
b = 3 ft Length of base
hB = 2.6 ft Height of base
Lateral area:
3 . ($$\frac{1}{2}$$ . b . hb) = 3 . $$\frac{1}{2}$$ . 3 . (2.6) = 11.7 ft2
The base is the same triangle as triangles in lateral faces of a triangular pyramid
Therefore, area of the base is: $$\frac{1}{2}$$ . b . hb = 3.9 ft
The total surface area is 11.7 + 3.9 = 15.6 ft2.
The lateral area is 11.1 ft2.
The total surface area is 15.6 ft2.

Use a net to find the lateral area and the total surface area of the pyramid.

Find the Lateral area of the rectangular pyramid.
We have four triangles with base 16 in. and height 20 in.
b = 16 ft Length of base
hB = 20 ft Height of base
Lateral area:
4. ($$\frac{1}{2}$$ . b. hb) = 4 . $$\frac{1}{2}$$ . 16 . 20 = 640 in2
The base is in the shape of rectangle.
Therefore, area of the base is: b . b = 256 in
The total surface area is 640 + 256 = 896 in2
The lateral area is 640 in2.
The total surface area is 896 in2.

Example 3.
Shoshannaâ€™s team plans to build stands to display sculptures. Each stand will be in the shape of a rectangular prism. The prism will have a square base with side lengths of 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$ feet, and it will be 3$$\frac{1}{2}$$ feet high. The team plans to cover the stands with metallic foil that costs $0.22 per square foot. How much money will the team save on each stand if they cover only the lateral area instead of the total surface area? Step 1 Make a net of the rectangular prism. Step 2 Find the lateral and total surface areas of the prism. The four lateral faces are 3$$\frac{1}{2}$$ feet by 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$ feet rectangles. The two bases are 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$ feet by 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$ feet squares. Lateral area: 4$$\frac{1}{2}$$ . (3$$\frac{1}{2}$$ . 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$) = 35 square feet Total surface area: 2 (2$$\frac{1}{2}$$ . 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$) + 35 = 47$$\frac{1}{2}$$ square feet Add the area of the bases to the lateral area. Step 3 Find and compare the prices. Cost for total surface area:$0.22(47$$\frac{1}{2}$$) = $10.45 Cost for lateral area:$0.22(35) = $7.70 The team will save$10.45 – $7.70, or$2.75, for each stand by covering only the lateral area.

Essential Question Check-In

Question 11.
How do you find the lateral and total surface area of a triangular pyramid?
Lateral surface area of any three-dimensional figure means the sum of area of all sides except the area of base. And the total surface area means the area of all the sides of figure including the area of base.

Now in case of triangular pyramid it will have total four faces including the base triangle. So the lateral surface area will. be the sum of areas of all the three triangle which are faces of triangular pyramid except the base triangle. And the total surface area will be the sum of areas of all the four triangle including the base triangle

Communicate Mathematical Ideas Describe how you approach a problem involving lateral area and total surface area. What do you do first? In what ways can you use the figure that is given with a problem? What are some shortcuts that you might use when you are calculating these areas?
When solving a problem involving lateral area and total surface area, determine first the lateral area of the given
figure. This is because the lateral area is needed to determine the total surface area of the given figure. It is easier to determine the lateral area of the given figure if you know what figure are you dealing with, is it a pyramid or a prism, and what is the base of the given figure. The total surface area is the sum of the lateral area and the area of the base. The lateral area should be determined first before determining the total surface area of the given figure.

Solve for the lateral area first.

Question 22.
Persevere in Problem-Solving A pedestal in a craft store is in the shape of a triangular prism. The bases are right triangles with side lengths of 12 cm, 16 cm, and 20 cm. The store owner used 192 cm2 of burlap cloth to cover the lateral area of the pedestal. Find the height of the pedestal.
Lateral area:
One 20 cm. by h cm. rectangle;
One 12 cm. by h cm. rectangle;
One 16 cm. by h cm. rectangle.
1 . (20 . h) = 20 . h.
1 . (12 . h) = 12 . h.
1 . (16 . h.) = 16 . h.
Lateral area: 20 . h. + 12 . h + 16 . h = 48 . h cm2.
The lateral area is 192 cm2.
192 = 48 . h.
Divide both sides by 48.

The height of the pedestal is h = 4 cm.

Question 23.
Communicate Mathematical Ideas The base of Prism A has an area of 80 ft2, and the base of Prism B has an area of 80 ft2. The height of Prism A is the same as the height of Prism B. Is the base of Prism A congruent to the base of Prism B? Explain.
The base of Prism A has the same area as the base of Prism B. They could be congruent however, it depends on the shape of the base. If the bases of Prism A and Prism B are both squares, then they are congruent. But if the bases of Prism A and Prism B are triangles or rectangles, there could be a difference in the dimensions of the triangle base and the rectangle base, which makes them not congruent It is because congruent figures have the same shape and size.

It depends on the shape of the base.

Question 24.
Critique Reasoning A triangular pyramid is made of 4 equilateral triangles. The sides of the triangles measure 5 m, and the height of each triangle is 4.3 m. A rectangular prism has a height of 4.3 m and a square base that is 5 m on each side. Susan says that the total surface area of the prism is more than twice the total surface area of the pyramid. Is she correct? Explain.
Triangular pyramid:
For lateral area:
We have three triangles with a base of 5 m. and height of 4.3 m.
b = 5m Length of base
hB = 4.3 m Height of base
Lateral area:
3. ($$\frac{1}{2}$$. b . hb) = 3 . $$\frac{1}{2}$$ . 5 . (4.3) = 32.25 m2
Lateral area: 32.25 m2.
The base is in the shape of a triangle with a base of 5 m. and height of 4.3 m
Base area: 1 . ($$\frac{1}{2}$$ . 5. (4.3)) = 10.75 m2
The total surface area is 32.25 + 10.75 = 43 m2
Rectangular prism:
For lateral area:
We have four 5 m. by 4.3 m. rectangles.
4 . (5 . (4.3)) = 86
Lateral area: 86 m2
The base is in the shape of 5 m. by 5 m. rectangle.
Base area:
2 (5 . 5) = 50 m2
The total surface area is 86 + 50 = 136 m2.

Susan is correct. The total surface area of the prism is three times of total surface area of the pyramid.
