Right prisme with rectangular bases.

- 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
*A*represents the area of the base and_{b}*P*represents the perimeter of the base._{b}

### Example

This is a right rectangular prism:
