## FoolForMath 3 years ago Fool's problem of the day, $$(1)$$ Two cones of each of which have same height and diameter are cut from the opposite sides of a unit cube with axes at the center. If the radii are $$\frac 1 4$$ and $$\frac 12$$ units respectively. Find the surface area of the resultant cavity. Good luck! PS: I an attest that this is not a very easy problem.

1. Sarkar

if the diameters are same ,how can the radius be different..????

2. FoolForMath

For cone 1 Height 1 = diameter 1 For cone 2 Height 2 = diameter 2

ohhh,sorry...

It wasn't given to me, why should I give it to you ? ;)

Is this supposed to be an English test?

8. Kreshnik

lol @FoolForMath where do you get these quesitons?

9. estudier

A book where the diameter is same but different.

10. FoolForMath

No, but interpreting is a part of problem solving ;)

Surface Area of Cube - Area of Base1 -Area of Base2+Surface Area Cone1 + Surface Area Cone2

Seems right Ishaan :)
