Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Area of the square \[ a^2\] The area of the circle \[ \pi\frac{a^2}{4} \] Area of the isosceles triangle \[ \frac{a^2}{2} \] Hence, the complete statement should be read as follows Area of square to Area of circle to Area of triangle is \[ 1: \frac{\pi}{4}:\frac{1}{2} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but in my homework paper it say a hint;use 2r to represent the length of the sides of the square

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, since I used 'a' letter representing the side of the square We should obtain the same answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0b.When each of the figures is revolved about the vertical line of symmetry, it generates a solid of revolution—a cylinder, a sphere, and a cone. Calculate their volumes. Copy and complete this statement of proportionality. Volume of cylinder to Volume of sphere to Volume of cone is ? to ? to ?.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, the formula to calculate the cone is \[ V_1=\frac{\pi a^3}{12} \] Volume for the sphere using the formula is \[ V_2=\frac{\pi a^3}{3} \] And lastly, volume of the cylinder is \[ V_3= \pi \frac{a^3}{4} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you feel less comfortable with 'a', you can replace it by '2r' as in a hint to obtain the answer
