There will be three pairs of matching sides: one pair 5x7, one pair 5x12 and one pair 12x7. We can compute the are of each side (in pairs) and then add up the total: [latex]A_{surf}=2\times(l \times w)+2\times(l \times h)+2\times(h \times w)[/latex] [latex]A_{surf}=2\times(5\times7)+2\times(5\times12)+2\times(12\times7)[/latex] [latex]A_{surf}=2\times35+2\times60+2\times84[/latex] [latex]A_{surf}=70+120+168[/latex] [latex]A_{surf}=358[/latex] [latex]A_{surf}=358m^{2}[/latex]
