# Find the total area (surface area) of a regular octahedron if the area of each face is 5.5   i n 2 .

To determine

To find:

The total surface area of a regular octahedron.

Explanation

Approach:

1) A polygon is a two dimensional shape form with more than two straight lines.

2) A polyhedron is a three-dimensional solid shape.

3) Each flat surface of a polyhedron is a polygon and is called a face.

4) The line segment where two faces of a polyhedron meet is called an edge.

5) The point where three or more edges of a polyhedron meet is called a vertex.

6) A regular polyhedron is a convex polyhedron whose faces are congruent regular polygons.

Calculation:

A regular octahedron is a regular polyhedron with 8 congruent faces. Each face is an equilateral triangle.

Surface area of each face of octahedron =5
