Cube \(4a^{2}\) \(6a^{2}\) \(a^{3}\)
Right Prism \(Perimeter \; of \; base \times height\) \(Lateral \; Surface \; Area + 2(Area \; of \;  One \; End)\) \(Area \; of \; Base \times Height\)

Right Circular Cylinder \(2\pi rh\) \(2\pi r \left (r+h \right )\) \(\pi r^{2} h\)
Right Pyramid \(\frac{1}{2} Perimeter \; of \; Base \times \; Slant Height\) \(Lateral \; Surface \; Area + Area \; of \; the \; Base\) \(\frac{1}{3}(Area \; of \; the \; Base) \times height\)
Right Circular Cone \(\pi rl\) \(\pi r \left (l+r \right )\) \(\frac{1}{3}\pi r^{2}h\)
Sphere \(4\pi r^{2}\)

\(4\pi r^{2}\) \(\frac{4}{3}\pi r^{3}\)
Hemisphere \(2\pi r^{2}\)

\(3\pi r^{2}\)

Geometric Area Geometric Area Formula
Square \(a^{2}\)
Rectangle \(ab\)
Circle \(\pi r^{2}\)
Ellipse \(\pi r1\: r2\)

Algebraic Identities For Class 8

\(\left (a + b \right ) \left (a – b \right ) = a^{2} – b^{2}\)
\(\left (x + a \right )\left (x + b \right ) = x^{2} + \left (a + b \right )x + ab\)
\(\left (x + a \right )\left (x – b \right ) = x^{2} + \left (a – b \right )x – ab\)
\(\left (x – a \right )\left (x + b \right ) = x^{2} + \left (b – a \right )x – ab\)
\(\left (x – a \right )\left (x – b \right ) = x^{2} – \left (a + b \right )x + ab\)
\(\left (a + b \right )^{3} = a^{3} + b^{3} + 3ab\left (a + b \right )\)
\(\left (a – b \right )^{3} = a^{3} – b^{3} – 3ab\left (a – b \right )\)<
