Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Volume is half that of a sphere V=(1/2)*(4/3)*pi*r^3 = 18pi > 2/3 r^3 = 18 >r^3 = 18*(3/2) > r^3 = 27 = 3*3*3 r=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A triangular pyramid has a volume of 180 cm3 and a height of 12 cm. Find the length of a side of the triangular base if the triangle’s height from that side is 6 cm.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0volume of pyramid is area of base(B)*height V = B*12 = 180 B = 180/12 = 15 Area of base is area of triangle A = 1/2 * length(L)*height = 15 1/2*6*L = 15 solve for L

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops i messed up volume of pyramid is 1/3* B*h correction 1/3*B*12 = 180 B = 180/4 = 45 ... A=1/2*6*L = 45

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no (1/2)*6*L = 45 solve for L by multiplying 6 and 1/2, then dividing on both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dont forget about pi (use3.14) r^2 = 78.5/pi divide 78.5/3.14 then take the square root to get r

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sylvia has just discovered that the valve on her cement truck failed during the night and that all the contents ran out to form a giant cone of hardened cement. To make an insurance claim, she needs to figure out how much cement is in the cone. The circumference of its base is 44 feet, and it is 5 feet high. Calculate the volume to the nearest cubic foot.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to answer this we need to find radius what is circumference of circle

dumbcow

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good but we still need to divide by pi (3.14)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good next we use volume of cone formula

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0really all you need to do to solve these problems is just write out the sets of equations that apply to the problem for example the circumference equation and the volume of a cone. then, you plug in what you know such as the measurement of circumference to solve for the radius then plug that into the volume of a cone formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A sealed rectangular container 6 cm by 12 cm by 15 cm is sitting on its smallest face. It is filled with water up to 5 cm from the top. How many centimeters from the bottom will the water level reach if the container is placed on its largest face?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright first you need to find the volume of the water on its smallest face

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one sec i will be right back...

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what might be a good idea is to draw a picture first which face would be the smallest?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so what you have is a rectangular prism with a base of 6x12 (the smallest face) making the height without water 15

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the height of the water is five cm from the top so you subtract five from fifteen to get the height of the water

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0720 6x12x10 remember to include WxLxH

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we have the volume what we don't know is what the height of the water is when the container is set on its largest face

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i would draw a picture of the new rectangle first what is the W and the L of the base?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we only subtracted five to find the height of the water when the container was on the small face, since we have the W and L now we solve for the height using the volume formula V=WxLxH

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use the volume formula we found before 720

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now subtract that from six since it wants the height from the top of the prism

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0try to image a cereal box, you have the box standing up. you know how high the cereal is from the top of the box you use that to find the volume of the cereal. then you tip the box on its larger face then you want to know what the height of the cereal is from the new top edge of the box

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does that help to picture the problem a little better?

anonymous
