How to Find the Surface Area?

In order to tell you how to find the surface area of an object, I need to know what object you are trying to find the surface area for. For example if you are trying to find the surface area of a cube whose sides measure 10 inches each then you would square 10 inches which equals 100 inches square and then multiply by 6 (number of sides) and you will come up with 600 square inches as the surface area.
