What statement best describes the cross section obtained? It is a square of side length 10 cm. It is a rectangle of length 10 cm and width 7 cm. It is a square of side length 7 cm. It is a rectangle of length 7 cm and width 5 cm.

What do you think? What are the sidelengths of the cross section?

The diagram doesn't actually indicate that the prism is perfectly bisected, so I wouldn't say you could label those as 5 and 5.

That's a 50/50 split :-) So yes, as you can see the butter you get on the knife from cutting the butter stick is a 7 by 7 square
