Mel is making a paper tepee, as shown below.
What is the area of the paper required to make the lateral surface of the tepee?
37.7 cm2
69.1 cm2
603.3 cm2
301.7 cm2
it would help alot if someone explained it to me i do not get it?:/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh mybad, you call it a cone. The formula is \[Surface Area = \pi \times radius^2 + \pi \times radius * height\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Rae well the formula for surface area of a cone is 1/2 [pi x D x slant height] so plug in your numbers and solve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(height is the slant height in my formula) Dakota I think you are confused. That's not the formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They don't include the bottom surface it seems. Then just don't add the bottom surface. It reduces to Area = pi * radius * slant height

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i mean what is the diameter

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I agree, but you stated the "surface area of a cone is" which is false. But I see your point. Lateral surface. Diamater is twice the radius.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0omg [12 x 16pi] =192pi then 1/2[192] = 96pi then (96)(3.14) solve! i cant just give u the answer work it out
