To calculate the volume of a rectangular prism, you multiply its length, width, and height. Similarly, to find the total surface area, you need to calculate the sum of the areas of all its faces. Let’s calculate them step by step:

Volume:

The formula for volume is V = length × width × height.

Given:

Length = 8 cm

Width = 5 cm

Height = 3 cm

V = 8 cm × 5 cm × 3 cm

V = 120 cm³

Therefore, the volume of the rectangular prism is 120 cubic centimeters (cm³).

Total Surface Area:

The formula for the total surface area is A = 2lw + 2lh + 2wh, where l is the length, w is the width, and h is the height.

Given:

Length = 8 cm

Width = 5 cm

Height = 3 cm

A = 2(8 cm × 5 cm) + 2(8 cm × 3 cm) + 2(5 cm × 3 cm)

A = 2(40 cm²) + 2(24 cm²) + 2(15 cm²)

A = 80 cm² + 48 cm² + 30 cm²

A = 158 cm²

Therefore, the total surface area of the rectangular prism is 158 square centimeters (cm²).

So, the volume of the rectangular prism is 120 cm³, and the total surface area is 158 cm².
