Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Volume = areaBase *h h = areaBase/volume volume = 768 we need to find areaBase for this figure the base or top and bottom is a right triangle the triangle has one side of 8 and diagonal side of 17 area of triangle = 1/2*length*height find height of triangle using pythagorean theorem a^2 +b^2 = c^2 so 8^2+b^2 = 17^2 find b, then use that to find area of triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0be careful there are 2 equations one is for 2dimensional triangle (The base) one is for 3dimensional prism 768 = (AreaTriangle)*H AreaTriangle = 1/2*8*15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Volume = areaBase*Height 896 = areaBase*24 areaBase = 896/24=112/3 Base is a hexagon, but can be split up into 2 trapezoids Area of trapezoid = 1/2*h*(b1+b2) = 112/3 b1 =12 b2 = 20 solve for h
