Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk. im finding the area of the cross sectioned triangle and then deviding the side of the square to find the other length. I'm obviously doing something wrong or not adding a step that i should because i can not find the right answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would i have to find the volume of the cross section and up of the two pyramids and compare the volumes to find the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think its 1.67 but not sure how to prove it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the areas of the 2 cross sections are equal then the answer is 1.67 because the area of the triangle = 0.5*3*4 = 6 and 6 / 3.6 = 1.67

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the volumes are the same and the cross sections are the same height above the base so can we say that the areas of cross sections are the same???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the heights are the same as well as the volumes so i think that makes the areas of cross section at a given height the same
