**What is lateral algebra?**

Lateral indicates the side of something. Therefore, lateral surface area is found by finding the surface area of the sides of the object. This is done by finding the perimeter of the base and multiplying it by the height of any three-dimensional figure.

**How do you find the lateral surface?**

The lateral surface area of a cuboid is given by 2(length + breadth) × height. Similarly, the lateral surface area of a cube of side “a” is equal to 4 × (side)2.

### What is lateral side?

**What are lateral faces of a prism?**

The lateral faces of a prism are always parallelograms and are usually rectangles. A prism is named by the shape of its base. So, a prism with a rectangular-shaped base is called a rectangular prism. Likewise, a prism with a hexagonal-shaped base is called a hexagonal prism.

## What is CSA in math?

Curved Surface Area- The curved surface area is defined as the area of only curved surface, leaving the circular top and base. Total Surface Area- It is the area of the curved surface as well as the bases. Formula for calculating the Curved Surface Area (C.S.A.)-
