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 =?????

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

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

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

word for word...

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,

I think it is a typo and should say sum instead of product
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think you just add them all together...

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.

Thanks all. Cya...

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

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