Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok what was the answer for step 1 and 2 again please:)

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1step 1 is the dimensions of the box I'll get back to step 2 later

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok and what was the dimensions of the box?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Length = ? Width = ? Height = ? do you remember the three numbers?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh wait yes i do .. you can continue :)

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great, "dimensions" just means, what is the length, what is the width, and what is the height? that's all

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok next step .. number 4

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, so, when we "scale" the box by a factor of 10, it becomes 10 times longer, 10 times wider, and 10 times taller what is the new length, width, and height after we multiply each by 10?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0length: 80 width: 20 height : 120

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0whats the answer for step 2? @Vocaloid

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I already told you, I'm going to get back to step 2 later, please be patient ok, you found the new length, width, and height. what is the surface area? (using length = 80, width = 20, and height = 120)?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, please use the length, width, and height that you just found. L = length = 120, W = width = 20, H = height = 120 Surface area = 2*W*H + 2*L*W + 2*H*L

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also, please stop tagging me, I'm right here...

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1WAIT, hold on, L = 80, not 120, sorry

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1perfect, now go to step 5 Volume = L*W*H IMPORTANT: use the original dimensions from step 1!

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1find the volume of the box

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so what was the answer for step 4

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1step 4: what is the surface area of the box after it has been scaled up by 10?? please try to concentrate on what is being asked

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I just told you: volume of the box = L*W*H using the dimensions from step 1

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1find the volume of the box

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great, step 5 is done, now on to step 6

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"scaling down" means that the length, width, and height are divided by 10. Using these new dimensions, find the volume of the box

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so now what do i do?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1divide the length, width, and height by 10 and find the new volume

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like this: l / w / h

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, no, that's not what I meant new length = old length/10 new width = old width/10 new height = old height/10 find the new length, new width, and new height

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait can you write it out and ill solve it

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Please stop tagging me, I won't say it again. I already wrote it out for you: the old length is 8 inches the old width is 2 inches the old height is 12 inches the new length = old length/10 new width = old width/10 new height = old height/10

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i have to divide by the new length or old?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1please, just follow what I wrote out: new length = old length/10 new width = old width/10 new height = old height/10 find the new length, new width, and new height, using the old length, old width, and old height divide the old length by 10 divide the old width by 10 divide the old height by 10 do you know how to divide by 10?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you help me with that

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is 20 divided by 10?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right! you know how to divide by 10! so what is the old length divided by 10? old length = 12

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 12 divided by 10?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ahh, sorry, the old length is 8, I keep forgetting the old length divided by 10 is...?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u cant divide it.. it will be 1.25

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, what is 8 divided by 10?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes! so, let's go back to what we had before: new length = old length divided by 10 new width = old width divided by 10 new height = old height divided by 10 the old length is 8 the old width is 2 the old height is 12 what is the new length? what is the new width? what is the new height?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1old length is 8 new length is old length divided by 10 what is the new length?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1YES now, old width is 2 new width is old width divided by 10 what is the new width?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great old height is 12 new height is old height divided by 10 what is the new height?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1PERFECT, we're almost done new volume = (new length)*(new height)*(new width) what is the new volume?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great, that's the new volume

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now let's go back to step 2...

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I never told you the answer, I'm going to help you find the answer

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1432861172930:dw

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1try to imagine that I took a knife and cut through the dotted lines, so that the box gets cut into pieces

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, if you look at each slice from the side, each slice is shaped like a rectangle

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1432861383242:dw (pretend you are looking at the box from the side)

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1each crosssection is shaped like a rectangle, so that's the answer to part 2 do you see the black rectangle I drew in the lower right corner? That's called the "crosssection"

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright, we've finished all six parts, is there anything you're still confused about?

Vocaloid
