Cuboid Surface Area Formula

Formula variable explanation:

  • C represents the surface area.
  • l represents the Length.
  • w represents the Width.
  • h represents the Height.

LaTeX formula

If you are working in a TeX based editor you could use this TeX formula to calculate the cuboid surface area.

\mathrm{C}=2\cdot\left(\mathrm{l}\cdot w+ w\cdot\mathrm{h}+\mathrm{h}\cdot\mathrm{l}\right)

How To Calculate The Cuboid Surface Area Your Self

Calculating the surface area is rather simple when you know the formula presented above. Follow these steps:

  1. Write down this formula:

  2. Then change the following variables with your values:
    1. l shall be changed with the Length of your cuboid. As an example l could be changed to 10.
    2. w shall be changed with the Width of your cuboid. As an example w could be changed to 10.
    3. h shall be changed with the Height of your cuboid. As an example h could be changed to 10.
  3. Now you can enter this in to your calculator and you will get your answer.
