3. chloeismyname3

huh @Niall

4. Niall

I pity you for having to solve that problem. It's as foreign as the lady in it!

5. blueweek77

That was his way of saying he doesn't know how to help you.

6. chloeismyname3

oh..i feel stupid :| Can you help

7. chloeismyname3

@blueweek77

8. blueweek77

I wish i could, but i know that @ganeshie8 probably could :D

9. chloeismyname3

ok thanks

10. chloeismyname3

@ganeshie8 can you help me please

11. HourglassMage

Well, let's go through this step-by-step

12. HourglassMage

What shape is the hat?

13. HourglassMage

are you there? @chloeismyname3

14. chloeismyname3

The hat is in the shape of a cone

15. HourglassMage

this is your equation A2 = 2RH - H2

16. HourglassMage

A^2 = 2(9)(12) - (12)(2)

17. HourglassMage

Sorry, wrong one 2(pi)RH

18. HourglassMage

A = 3.14(9)(12)

19. HourglassMage

A = 339.12

20. HourglassMage

339.12 in^2

21. chloeismyname3

nevermind i figured out the answer, but I will still give you a medal for helping thanks :) This is what I got The surface area of a cone (excluding the base) is pi*r*s, where r = radius and s = slant height So in this case, we have pi*9*12 = 96*pi =~ 301.59 in^2

22. HourglassMage

....

23. HourglassMage

24. HourglassMage

Somehow you solved the equation wrong

25. chloeismyname3

how is it wrong?

26. chloeismyname3

@HourglassMage

27. HourglassMage

Gah, wtf is up with OpenStudy. It is way to glitchy....hope you saw my response before it was deleted

28. HourglassMage

Huh, it's still there, but some of my older replies were replicated and posted again. WTF, Openstudy??!!

29. chloeismyname3

So what would I have to change?

30. HourglassMage

wait...what?sorry, you multiplied 9 x 12 incorrectly

31. HourglassMage

it's 108, not 96

32. HourglassMage

108 x pi(3.14) = 339.12

33. chloeismyname3

oh ok thanks

34. HourglassMage

I just told you...what are you confused about?

35. chloeismyname3

OMG OPENSTUDY :|

36. HourglassMage

ikr, it sucks

37. HourglassMage

one last try... 9 x 12 = 108 108 x 3.14 = 339.12

38. HourglassMage

You had multiplied 9 x 12 incorrectly

39. chloeismyname3

it would be The surface area of a cone (excluding the base) is pi*r*s, where r = radius and s = slant height So in this case, we have pi*9*12 = 108*pi =~ 339.12 in^2

40. HourglassMage

exactly

41. HourglassMage

You had originally gotten 309 or something, hence why we had to go through this :)

42. chloeismyname3

Ok Thank you so much. Yeah that was just a typo sorry lol

43. HourglassMage

yw, np :)
