## brookieismyname 3 years ago Observe the composite figure below. http://s1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc513/wattpadbookcoverstry/Math/?action=view ¤t=image0014e7221cd.gif The bottom shape is a square prism with base edges of 4 inches and a height of 12 inches. What is the volume of this composite figure if the top shape is a right pyramid with a height of 3 inches? 208 in3 16 in3 144 in3 192 in3

Alright, so we can break this shape into two shapes. Find each of the volumes independently, and then add them together for the total volume. So, we need to know how to find the volume of the square prism, and how to find the volume of a right pyramid. Do you know how to find these?

I do but i'm exausted so my brains fried! Can you just give me the answer? I know that sounds weird but I have to leave soon! Please <3

4. Vandreigan

Haha, I don't like to do that, but I'll make an exception this once, I suppose. Give me just a moment to do the calculations.

Thanks so much! I only have one more to go! I missed it! BUt thanks! And it's on a practice test, so it's not like your cheating. She said I could use online rescources

10. dpflan

The concern is that telling you the answer didn't teach you how to solve problems of this kind on your own. I shouldn't have told you the answer, but if you'll study it and see how to gsolve it yourself, there will be no harm done.

16. brookieismyname

It's fine guys? We figured it out ourseleves and i'd appericate if you didn't really butt in?

17. dpflan

When it devolved to merely the giving of an answer on the account of your said fatigue, the situation did change. So I entered the discussion to rely to rules of the site.

Anyway, good luck with the studies. I hope you the real exam do goes well.

Sorry I didn't mean to seem rude, it's my fatigue. I'm not a happy camper at night! lol But I was just thinking about how rude I acted and wanted to come apologize to you.
