REVIEW for FINAL EXAM:
Units 1 -- 13  -- Review for Final Exam  ... (no new material after Memorial Day)


KNOW THESE EQUATIONS:


Surface Area of a Cylinder 
SA = 2B + ph                {two times the Base Area + circumference times height}
Volume of a Cylinder
V = B • h                        {Base Area times height}

Surface Area of a Triangular Prism
 SA = 2B + ph              {two times the Base Area + perimeter times height}
Volume of a Triangular Prism 
V = B • h                        {Base Area times height}

Interest ( i  = P • r • t ) 
interest = Principle times rate times time (in years)
