Thats correct they asked for the product of the number of sides. Just multiply them out 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 x 8 =?????

- anonymous

oh for a total then yes!

- radar

Are calculators permitted if so use calculator

- anonymous

20160

- anonymous

in your 1st quest. you didn't list the septagon so then it would be...2880

- anonymous

i think you are actually supposed to add them all up ... becaues that would be a big number multiplying woudl give you more than the sides but you are addind just those shapes.

- anonymous

so either 33 (including 7) or 26 (w/o 7)

- radar

Does the problem state "write the product of the numbert of sides......" Does the problem include the septagon?

- radar

If the septagon is omitted then it would be:
3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 8 = ??????

- anonymous

word for word...

- anonymous

but if you are adding up all of the sides it would be ADDING not multiplying all the shapes. you are adding each polygons sides together,

"Write the product of the number of sides of a triangle, a quadrilateral, a pentagon, a hexagon, and an octagon."

- anonymous

I think it is a typo and should say sum instead of product

- anonymous

i think you just add them all together...

- radar

O.K It asking for the product, so I would give them the product, you don't your daughter to get in the habit of ignoring what the problem is asking for.

- anonymous

I will have her do both.

- radar

Did she come up with 2880?

- anonymous

20160

- anonymous

sum : 33

- anonymous

yep.

- anonymous

Thanks all. Cya...

- radar

So she did include the 7 sided septagon because 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 8 = 2880

- radar

Actually this was a good exercise. It required knowing the number of sides of various shapes, and the ability to follow instructions.
