LaTeX formula

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

\mathrm{H}=6\cdot e\cdot\mathrm{h}+3\cdot\sqrt{3}\cdot{ e}^{2}

How To Calculate The Hexagonal Prism 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. e shall be changed with the Base edge of your hexagonal prism. As an example e could be changed to 10.
    2. h shall be changed with the Height of your hexagonal prism. 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.
