Surface area = 2 × pi × r2   +  2 × pi × r × h

pi = 3.14
h is the height
r is the radius




Rectangular prism:

Surface area = 2 × l × w  +  2 × l × h  +  2 × w × h




l is the length
w is the width
h is the height




Sphere:

pi = 3.14
r is the radius
h is the height
l is the slant height



Right square pyramid:
