one thing to remember is that a 3-4-5 triangle is a rt trianlge; and they love to use it....
5^2 = 3^2 + h^2 25 - 9 = h^2 16 = h^2 ; h=4
good grief
(2+8)4 ------ = area = 20 2
9 inches aint a foot; so convert it; 9/12 = 3/4 20(3/4) = 5(3) = 15 cubic feet
so 15 cubic feet of top soil is needed... ok.. let me finish my problem and check it to yours.... thank you again!
youre welcome :)
Alright... I get the same... but it would have been wrong... I didnt know to convert. Good beans~
you get a ruler .... :) 1 ft = 12 in 9in(1ft) ------ = (9/12) ft = (3/4)ft 12 in
I like how you show the work and where it all comes from... Very great on the clarification!!! :)
yeah it totally made sense
