Which would help to calculate the volume of the composite figure shown?

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
first could you tell me what shape that is?

xlegendxBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it looks like a prism...
 9 months ago

xlegendxBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no idea what kind though

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Anyone know what formula i would use to solve this?
 9 months ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that seems like the combination of prism and a semicirclular figure with uniform height ... do you have the dimensions ?
 9 months ago

xlegendxBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
^that's needed. rough idea would be base area x height..so dimensions would be fantastic
 9 months ago

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
nope, it doesnt come this the dimensions, the question is asking what formula to use and i dont know which formula that is... here are the answers...

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
base times side onehalf times pi times diameter times height onethird times length times width times height pi times radius times slant height

i am sorry dear moderator. i had no idea i unconsciously stated an answer. please don't ban me again

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
lets see... semicicular region, area = 1/2 pi radius ^2 dw:1372858384560:dw

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you did state the answer ? i missed it!
 9 months ago

xlegendxBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
let's keep it that way then

hartnn, i dont really understand what you drew?
 9 months ago

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
The base is a rectangle if thats what you were asking
 9 months ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i drew the base region, sorry for my bad drawing :P
 9 months ago

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh okay :p so you think the formula is area = 1/2 pi radius ^2 ?
 9 months ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
thats just for semicircular part... but we need to add the area of rectangle too (1/2 pi r^2) + (2r)*(other side) but you choices do not contain the + (addition) part ..:\

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh :/ just from the answers which one would you think it is?
 9 months ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
let me guess, the answer must contain 'pi' due to circular region, so 2nd and 4th alternative but they only differ by the word 'slant' ! (because half of diameter = radius)

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
are you sure, choices are correct ? because a volume should contain '3' dimension of length!
 9 months ago

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I would say its B and yes these are the correct answers
 9 months ago

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because once you have done the half circle there isnt anything that has to be done with a slant
 9 months ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
see, your choices a,b,d have only 2 dimensions of length, they all are AREAS!
 9 months ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
only choice 'c' is volume but it doen't contain pi :\
 9 months ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
if the 1st choice is base 'area' times side, then it can be the answer
 9 months ago

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yeah i would actually say its C and yes it does the answer on my screen is 1/3TTr^2h
 9 months ago

yoyogatorsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I guess i did mess up the answers sorry :/
 9 months ago

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ohh..but 'c' didn't describe 1/3 pi r^2 h... anyways, no problem :)
