The coordinates A (0, 0), B (0, 6), and C (3, 0) are graphed and connected together. What three-dimensional shape will be created when this shape is rotated about the y-axis? Provide an explanation for your answer to receive full credit.

    when I rotate that shape around the x-axis, I get this: |dw:1434859516576:dw| what can you conclude?

    It becomes a cone

    First we plot A(0,0), B(0,6), and C(3,0) on a graph. By connecting these points, we obtain a triangle. If we rotate the triangle about the y-axis, we have a three dimensional cone. That's how I would write it.

    you can explain your answer in this way: "when I rotate the triangle whose vertices are the provided pionts, the hypotenuse of that triangle generates a conic surface, whereas the side AC generates, during that rotation a circular surface. Now the union of those surfaces makes a cone"
