Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm I'd think so... but we don't have context to go with that so... could be, who knows

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. List the dimensions of your box. Be sure to include the units (in, cm, ft., etc.). 2. Describe the shape of the cross section when the box is cut parallel to the base. 3. What is the surface area of the box? 4. What is the surface area of the box if it is scaled up by a factor of 10? 5. What is the volume of the box? 6. What is the volume of the box if it is scaled down by a factor of ½? Thats what i have to do so i think thats what it meant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm it'd be simpler to use the same unit of measurement you know, for all dimensions :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/4 cm... hmm how much is that... hmmm well is easier to just convert the inches to cm's

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But the width is not inches it would be 0.0984252 in inches

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i can convert them to inches

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well... ok... I guess you could use that kinda tiny, but you'd end up doing some calculations with it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Height – 10 ½ inches =26.67 Width – ¼ centimeters Length – 8 1/8 inches =20.6375 that would be converted into inches

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lemme see if I can just make a box here, and for the sake of simplicity, let us use that but you'd need to do the same with yours dw:1440462147996:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait am i useing in or cm?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you're using... either unit, but you have to use the same for all, for the same of calculating the volume and surface area

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. that box has a width of 1, say hmm centimeters so width = 1cm length = 2cm height = 4cm dw:1440462378549:dw part 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and i need to describe but what exactly do i describe

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm well... need to dash but part 3 is the surface area of the box you can get the surface area by simply getting the area of each of the rectangles forming it and then sum those areas up notice the attached picture, a rectangular prism is just 6 rectangles stacked up to each other at the edges
