Students will use the volume and surface area formulas they know, to find the volume and surface area of composite figures. Students will see problems where one figure is combined with another, as well as problems where one figure has been removed from another. As an example of the former, a right rectangular prism with a rounded edge. As an example of the latter, a right rectangular prism with a hole drilled through.
