Using Eulerâ€™s Formula (F + V = E + 2), find the number of faces.
Vertices: 16
Edges: 37
Faces: ?

- anonymous

F=23 i think

for the balloon problem
circumference = 2*pi*r where r is the radius of the balloon
we can solve for r by substituting 28 for the circumference
28 = 2*pi*r
r = 14/pi
surface area of a sphere = 4*pi*r^2
since r = 14/pi, we can plug in 14/pi into the surface area equation and solve for surface area

- mckenzieandjesus

so do i do 2*3.14*14?

- Vocaloid

hm, not quite, we want to solve for r first
28 = 2*pi*r
we divide both sides by 2 pi, giving us
14/pi = r
then we use this value of r for the surface area equation

- mckenzieandjesus

i got 87 23/25?

- Vocaloid

|dw:1435442689088:dw|

- Vocaloid

can you show me how you got that answer?

- mckenzieandjesus

14/3.14 = 4 72/157

- mckenzieandjesus

is that right?

- Vocaloid

well, yes, that would be the value of r
(let's convert to decimals in this case, it'll make it a bit easier for us later on)
r = 14/3.14 = 4.46

- mckenzieandjesus

ok

- Vocaloid

then we can use this value of r for the surface area equation
surface area = 4*pi*r^2 = 4*3.14*(4.46)^2 = 249.8, which rounds to 250

- mckenzieandjesus

oh okay thanks !

- mckenzieandjesus

could u please help me with my second question above?

- mckenzieandjesus

im not sure on this one either :/
What is the surface area of the pyramid to the nearest whole number?
30 cm2
25 cm2

let's focus on the slant height one first (the one you posted earlier)
the height of the pyramid is 12 and the its base is a square with side lengths of 7
if you look at the triangle inside the pyramid, you can see that it's a right triangle with legs 12 and 3.5 (since 7/2 = 3.5)
the slant height (the hypotenuse) can be found using the Pythagorean theorem

- Vocaloid

|dw:1435443114081:dw|

- mckenzieandjesus

whats the pythagorean theorem?

- Vocaloid

|dw:1435443244024:dw|

- mckenzieandjesus

oh a^2+b^2=c^2?

- Vocaloid

yeah

- mckenzieandjesus

i got 156 1/4

- Vocaloid

remember to take the square root at the end

- mckenzieandjesus

244414 1/16?

- Vocaloid

square root, not square

- Vocaloid

|dw:1435443406104:dw|

- mckenzieandjesus

\[\sqrt{?} this on a an\]

- Vocaloid

yes

- mckenzieandjesus

on a and b and c?

- Vocaloid

the pythagorean theorem tells us
(slant height)^2 = 12^2 + 3.5^2 = 156.25
to find slant height, we take the square root of both sides

- mckenzieandjesus

220.9708691?

- Vocaloid

square root
slant height^2 = 156.25
slant height = square root of 156.25

- mckenzieandjesus

12 1/2?

- Vocaloid

yup, you got it, do you understand what we did?

- mckenzieandjesus

yes! thank you! and now can we do my next question ?

- Vocaloid

alright, it wants the surface area of the pyramid, which means we need to find the area of each of the 4 triangular faces + the area of the base
each of the triangles has base = 5 and height = 6
the area of a triangle can be found using the formula:
area = (1/2)(base)(height)
so the combined area of all the triangles is
4*(1/2)(base)(height)
next, we want to find the area of the base, which is a square with sides 5. the area of a square can be found using area = s^2
to find the final answer, add the area of the 4 triangles + area of the square

- Vocaloid

so putting everything together
base = 5
height = 6
surface area = 4*(1/2)(base)(height) + (base)^2

- mckenzieandjesus

160?

- mckenzieandjesus

but thats not on my answers

- Vocaloid

please check your calculations again

- Vocaloid

surface area = 4*(1/2)(6)(5) + (5)^2

- mckenzieandjesus

85? so i was right then because i already have that answer checked?

- Vocaloid

yup, 85 is what I got too

What is the surface area of the right prism?

thanks!

- Vocaloid

surface area of a prism = 2*L*W + 2*W*H + 2*H*L
H = 18
W = 6
L = 9

- Vocaloid

*rectangular prism

What is the volume of the cone to the nearest tenth?
829.4 m3
1,520.5 m3
552.9 m3
1,244.1 m3

##### 1 Attachment

- mckenzieandjesus

i think its a

- Vocaloid

(assuming that the radius is 11, kinda ambiguous from the diagram)
volume of cone = (1/3)(pi)*h*(r^2)
r = 11
h = 12

What is the surface area of the pyramid to the nearest whole number?
96 cm2
132 cm2

- Vocaloid

a is incorrect, please try my formula

- mckenzieandjesus

i got 1519 19/25

- Vocaloid

which is closest to answer b (probably because of rounding)

- mckenzieandjesus

19/25 as a decimal is 0.760

- mckenzieandjesus

thanku

- Vocaloid

and for the last one, it's asking for the surface area of the pyramid.
the last problem you posted is very similar to the third problem you posted (surface area of a pyramid), just with different numbers. perhaps you look at my work and solve it on your own? :)

- Vocaloid

helpful reminder:
surface area of pyramid = area of 4 triangles + area of square base

- mckenzieandjesus

so (1/3)*3.14*8*(6^2) = 301 11/25

- Vocaloid

wrong formula.
area of triangle = (1/2)(base)(height)
area of square = (base)^2

- mckenzieandjesus

so 24 and 36

- Vocaloid

right, and there are 4 triangles and 1 square
so
surface area = 4*area of triangle + area of squrae

- mckenzieandjesus

132

- Vocaloid

great

- mckenzieandjesus

do you know anything about this figure?
What is the volume of the composite figure?

hint: it's 2 prisms put together|dw:1435446620974:dw|

- Vocaloid

find the volume of prism A and add to the volume of prism B
volume = L*W*H
volume of A = (4)(2)(8)
volume of B = (2)(2)3)

- mckenzieandjesus

do u know what part would be length?

- mckenzieandjesus

oh nvrm

- Vocaloid

|dw:1435446845195:dw|

- mckenzieandjesus

A= 64
B= 12

- Vocaloid

right, so keep going

- mckenzieandjesus

what do i do next?

- mckenzieandjesus

64+12= 76

- Vocaloid

right

- mckenzieandjesus

ok thanku
