Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The theme park company is building a scale model of the killer whale stadium main show tank for an investor's presentation. Each dimension will be made 6 times smaller to accommodate the mockup in the presentation room. How many times smaller than the actual volume is the volume of the mockup?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3consider the relationship between dimensions and volume new length = (1/6)(old length) new width = (1/6)(old width) new depth = (1/6)(old depth) new volume = (1/6)*(1/6)*(1/6)*(old volume)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it's basically \[\frac{ 1 }{ 6 }^3*(359,189)\] 359,189 was the volume for the main show tank in the first part of the problem that I did.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3well, yeah, but it's not exactly what the question is asking it just wants you say compare the mockup volume and the actual volume "the mockup volume is 6^3 times smaller than the actual volume" should suffice as an answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh I see. Okay here's the next part Using the information from #4, answer the following question by filling in the blank: The volume of the actual tank is ____% of the mockup of the tank

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3"The volume of the actual tank is ____% of the mockup of the tank" means 100*(actual volume)/(mockup volume)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I need to find out the mock up volume. How would i do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3mockup volume = (1/6)^3 * actual volume

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So like i had before so that would be 1662.91203704 ?

Unofficialllyy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then I would do \[100*\frac{ 359189 }{1662.91203704 }?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which is 21599.99999996

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3right, just make sure to round and add a percent sign at the end

Unofficialllyy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So that rounded would be 216%? Im not very good with rounding

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay this is the last part If you were to take a cross section parallel to the base of one of the holding tanks, how would you describe the shape?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3that's kind of a vague question, but the crosssection would be a rectangle, assuming we'r e just looking at the holding tank part

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is a cross section?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3uh, it's a bit tough to explain but I'll try dw:1437337323358:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it's like cutting it in half?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3right, first you cut the tank, then you look at the tank from the top

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3dw:1437337461036:dw

Unofficialllyy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it says a cross section parallel, so if you cut the holding tanks in half parallel, would that make square or a rectangle?

Vocaloid
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I would say rectangle, I guess a square is a possibility if you look at it from the other side

Unofficialllyy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right, but I see why a rectangle. Thank you so much you were a huge help!
