**Surface area**

To find the surface area of an object, find the area for each of the sides then add them up

Example: A cube where all the sides are 2cm long

Each side would have an area of 4cm^2 - 2cm x 2cm

A cube has 6 sides, all with the same area

Therefore it becomes 4 x 6 cm^2 - or 4+4+4+4+4+4 cm^2

Equals 24cm^2
