Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The solid described is similar to a large solid with the given scale factor. Find the surface area and volume of a larger solid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the shape of the solid doesnt matter? or does it. a right prism can be anything as long as it is the same shape stacked up on top of itself.... or am I mistaken?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the easies thing to do is to make it a rectangular prism...i think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.082/6 would be a square prism with 6 equal sides ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0maybe; 4 side + 2 bases = 82 that would still be a rectanule prism,,,,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if it had square bases then 4wh + 2w = 82 would be simpler

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04wh + 2w^2 = 82 42 = w^2h h = 42/w^2 4(42/w) + 2w^2 = 82

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0168/w + 2w^2 = 82 168 + 2w^3 = 82w 2w^3 82w +168 = 0 2(w^3  41w + 84) = 0 w^3  41w + 84 = 0 is what I got so far if I did it right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and it looks like my w is going negative....... which doesnt bode well for my plans.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we knew the original shape for the base of this right prism, id be better to calculate..... other than that....sorry
