Which of the following is a situation where finding the lateral area would be appropriate? Determining how many bricks are needed to build a pyramid with a brick floor. Determining how much water is needed to fill a rectangular tank. Determining how much paint is needed to paint the walls of your bedroom. Determining how much stucco is needed to stucco the walls and roof of a building.
I thought was the paint one
lateral is side wall areas
walls and roof would seem to imply surface area
dosen't lateral refer to the cross surface area?
hard to say, in geometry class its the surface area - base areas
the lateral area of a cylindar is then the 2pir h stuff
Lateral area means only the sides of a figure. Not counting the bases
So, the one that says the paint ont he walls
