A triangular prism is shown with base of triangle labeled 16 cm, sides of triangles labeled 17 cm, and length of the box equal to 20 cm.

perfect

The volume of that shape , is just the area of the triangular face times the extruded length of the box
DanJS
  • DanJS
\[V = 1/2*base*height*depth\]
DanJS
  • DanJS
To find the height, need to work with the triangle like this...
anonymous
  • anonymous
proceed
DanJS

So the height, is found with the pythagorean theorem 17^2 = 8^2 + h^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
can i help
DanJS
  • DanJS
\[V = 1/2*base*height*depth \] \[V = 1/2 * 16 * \sqrt{17^2-8^2} * 20\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes of course @kittylover1234
anonymous
  • anonymous
that seem right i agree
DanJS
  • DanJS
oh, they gave you the volume at the start, so you could have figured h, without all the triangle things... V = 2400 = 1/2 * 16 * h * 20
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep so good so far
anonymous
  • anonymous
give me a sec im trying to understand
DanJS
  • DanJS
either way, the height comes out the same...k
anonymous

ummm ook...

For the Surface Area, you have to add up the area of all the sides, all the dimensions are given
DanJS
  • DanJS
2 triangles, 3 rectangles
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the hieght is 15 right?
DanJS
  • DanJS
right
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok then for the surfcae area i would have to add up all the areas
anonymous
  • anonymous
i got the answer

that what you got
DanJS
  • DanJS
\[S.A. = 2[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }]*16*15 + [20*17]+[20*17]+[20*16]\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got 1,320
