voluam is 1512ft.

- anonymous

ok so the surface area to volume ratio is 1176/1512. Is that less than 1?

- anonymous

put surface area over volume in a fraction and if the fraction is greater than 1 then he shouldn't manufacture them but in this case it is less than 1 so he should manufacture them.

- anonymous

no it isnt less then one i dont think @peachpi

- anonymous

don't guess, just stick it in a calculator

- anonymous

1176/1512 = 0.7777777....

is 1176 less than 1512?
it is.

it is.
so it is less than 1

if all have a volume of 125 then you multiply that by the number of cubes

- anonymous

@night.soul45 ????

- anonymous

perimeter of the curve of the semicircle\[P=\frac{ 3.14 }{ d }\]
in which the diameter is 1.2 meters. that would equal 2.62
now to find the whole perimeter\[(1.8\times2)+1.2+2.62=7.42\]
which rounds to 7.4meters.
