6.) Find the surface area of the regular pyramid shown to the nearest whole number. The figure is not drawn to scale.
http://assets.openstudy.com/updates/attachments/55bff878e4b03325500374c7lollygirl2171438647128464as.jpg
my answer: 1,125 m^2. is that correct?
7.) What is the surface area of a conical grain storage tank that has a height of 37 meters and a diameter of 16 metes? Round the answer to the nearest square meter.
my answer: 1152 square meters.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The surface area of a hexagonal pyramid is defined by this funky formula \[A= \frac{3\sqrt{3}}{2}a^2+3a\sqrt{h^2+\frac{3a^2}{4}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can begin solving this by using the given information to find the height \(h\) of our hexagonal pyramid dw:1438661575125:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But now that you have the information to solve for h, we can find our "\(a\)" dw:1438662349721:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now if we can find \(x\) using trig, then you can double it to find the base length \(a\) \[\tan(30) = \frac{x}{7.5\sqrt{3}} \rightarrow ~ x=7.5\sqrt{3}\tan(30)\]\[a=2x\] Therefore if you find x, just double it and you will have the base, \(a\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And now that you have both \(h\) and \(a\), plug it into your funky formula and solve :)
