Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Is there any more numbers? The volume of a hexagonal prism is \(V=\frac{\sqrt 3}{4}r^2 H\) where r is the side of the hexagon.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hmmm....strange question this one. Well, it might mean that H=r.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Either I misunderstood the question or it lacks something. Sorry, Idk why it is 34.88. Though I can show how to calc the volume of the prismdw:1352974254691:dw As such the volume is area of six triangles x height. \(V=(6)(\frac{1}{2} r^2 sin 60)(h)\) \(V=(\frac{3 \sqrt 3}{4} r^2)(h)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1V = SA = 512 V = ( 3 √3 /2 ) a² * H 512 = 2.6 a² * H >H = 197.1 / a² SA = 2.6 a² + 6a h 512 = 2.6 a² + 6a ( 197.1 / a²) = 2.6 a² + 1,182.6 / a 512a = 2.6a³ + 1,182.6 ( plug into your calculator to solve it :/ )
