The surface area is basically the sum of all the exposed area of the figure given in the pictures. Since all sides are rectangular, the area can be calculated through the equation,
Area = length x width
The total surface area of the figure is 58 ft².

Answer:
68 square feet is the total surface area of the stand.
Stepbystep explanation:
Since both the parts of the stand are in the shape of prism.
Therefore surface area of the stand = surface area of horizontal prism + surface area of vertical prism
Since the formula of surface area of prism = 2(lw + lh + hw)
where l = length, w = width, h = height
Now for horizontal prism
l = 7 ft. , w = 1 ft. , h = 2 ft
Therefore area of horizontal prism = 2(7×1 + 7×2 + 2×1) = 2×23 = 46 square feet
Now dimensions of the vertical prism
l = 3 ft. , w = 2 ft. , h = 1 ft.
and area = 2(3×2 + 3×1 + 1×2) = 2(11) = 22 square feet.
Now the area of whole structure will be = 46 + 22 = 68 square feet.
