Do you know what the area of a square is?
yesss
Great! So try to divide the figure into two parts: 1. the pyramid 2. The cube
Now, a cube's surface is basically 6 squares, so what would the area of the surface of the cube be?
256???
That's the area of one square. A cube's surface is made of 6 squares. So the surface area of the cube is 6 times the area of a square, right?
so that would be 1,536
Yeah, so that's the surface area of the bottom part. Now let us look at the top part, it is a right pyramid, which is basically 4 triangles and a square on the surface
DO you have the formula for the surface area of a right pyramid?
B+ 1/2ps?
yes
Exactly, for the pyramid your main problem is finding s what's the formula for s? You're very close!
i have no idea ! haha
B is the area of the base, which is a square, which you calculated above was 256! P is the perimeter of the base, which is the sum of all sides of the base, So P = 16 + 16 + 16 + 16 = 64
So we are left with s, which is the slant height. Slant height \[s=\sqrt{{h^2}+{r^2}}\] where h is the height, and r is the radius of the base The radius of the base is half the side of the square, so r = 8. Can you calculate s?
289?
17
nno 288
16
No no, square root that! You are on the right track tahtah99 :)
yess, 17!
So, you said the formula was B + 1/2Ps B = 256 (area of square) P = 64 (perimeter of square) s = 17 So total surface area of the pyramid is?
800 ?
Great! That's correct.
see i told you!!
you got it!!
-_____- hahah
So now, you have a pyramid and a cube Area of pyramid = 800 Area of cube = 1536 Now if you join the two, you will not see one side of the cube, and the base of the pyramid. Do you understand that?
It's not done yet :D
dont celebrate, its not done yet!!
oh Lord.. yeah i understand
So you have to subtract the area of two things: 1. The base of the pyramid 2. One square from the cube.
so subtract 512?
So your final area will be: 1536 + 800 - (area of 1 square) - (area of 1 square) = 1536 + 800 - 256 - 256
Exactly! You got this!
exactly!! WHAT I SAY?? YOU GOT IT!
is the answer c?
THATS WHAT IVE BEEN TRYING TO SAY!! YES IT IS!!!!!!
Yes it is!
Congrats :)
thank you so much ! : )
SEE! NOOOOOWWW YOU CELEBRATE!!
YOUR VERY WELCOME~!
hahahahahahha
Glad to help!
glad to help too!
could you check my answer for the last question ?
nvm got it
ok.
