## Right Rectangular Prism

• A right rectangular prism is also called a right parallelepiped.
• A right rectangular prism has three pairs of bases, any of which can be used to calculate the volume.

### Formulas

The following formulas can be used to calculate the volume V and the area A of a right rectangular prism:

• $$V=A_{b}\times h$$
• $$A=2A_{b}+P_{b}\times h$$ , where Ab represents the area of the base and Pb represents the perimeter of the base.

### Example
