    Anyone know what formula i would use to solve this?

    that seems like the combination of prism and a semicirclular figure with uniform height ... do you have the dimensions ?

    ^that's needed. rough idea would be base area x height..so dimensions would be fantastic

    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...

    base times side one-half times pi times diameter times height one-third times length times width times height pi times radius times slant height

    lets see... semicicular region, area = 1/2 pi radius ^2 |dw:1372858384560:dw|

    The base is a rectangle if thats what you were asking

    oh okay :p so you think the formula is area = 1/2 pi radius ^2 ?

    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 ..:\

    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)

    are you sure, choices are correct ? because a volume should contain '3' dimension of length!

    I would say its B and yes these are the correct answers

    because once you have done the half circle there isnt anything that has to be done with a slant

    see, your choices a,b,d have only 2 dimensions of length, they all are AREAS!

    only choice 'c' is volume but it doen't contain pi :\

    if the 1st choice is base 'area' times side, then it can be the answer
