# What is a rectangle with a square base?

## What is a rectangle with a square base?

A square prism (right square prism) is a prism having four sides as a rectangle and two squares as its bases (one square acts as the top). It is also known as a square cuboid or square box.

## How do you find the volume of a closed rectangular box?

(Hint: The surface area of a closed rectangular box with a square base of length x and width x and height h is given by the formula A = 2×2 + 4xh and the volume is given by the formula V = x2h.)

How many edges has a closed rectangular box?

So a rectangular box has 8 vertices, 10 edges and 6 faces.

### How do you find the surface area of an open rectangular box?

To find the surface area of a cuboid, add the areas of all 6 faces. We can also label the length (l), width (w), and height (h) of the prism and use the formula, SA=2lw+2lh+2hw, to find the surface area.

### How do you find the cubic area of a box?

To find the volume of a box, simply multiply length, width, and height — and you’re good to go! For example, if a box is 5×7×2 cm, then the volume of a box is 70 cubic centimeters.

What is a square base?

A square pyramid characterized by a square base is a three-dimensional shape having five faces, thus called a pentahedron. The most famous example of such a square pyramid is the Great Pyramid of Giza.

## How do I find the surface area of a rectangular square?

To find the area of the rectangle, just multiply the two edges together. Area (bottom edge) = length times width = lw. Going back to our example, the area of the bottom face is 4 inches x 3 inches = 12 square inches.

## What is the surface area of a closed rectangular box?

The surface area of a closed rectangular box is given by the formula A = 2(lw + dl + dw) where l is its length, w is its width and d is its depth.

How do you find the volume of a square?

We can find the volume of a square box just by knowing the length of the side of the box. The volume of a square box is equal to the cube of the length of the side of the square box. The formula for the volume is V = s3, where “s” is the length of the side of the square box.

### How many edges a square has?

4Square / Number of edges
