O_O sorry mate i don't know love
hmmm what's the context?
I thought it would mean like the width and length
hmm I'd think so... but we don't have context to go with that so... could be, who knows
1. 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
hmmm ok... so.. are you meant to get a box at first? just any box?
or.... where does the box come from? UPS? Fedex? closet?
It can be anything as long as it is a rectangular prism
ok... so start there then, pick one
I picked a notebooke
1. List the dimensions of your box. Be sure to include the units (in, cm, ft., etc.). <---- do that then
Height – 10 ½ inches Width – ¼ centimeters Length – 8 1/8 inches
I dont understand step 2
hmmm it'd be simpler to use the same unit of measurement you know, for all dimensions :)
1/4 cm... hmm how much is that... hmmm well is easier to just convert the inches to cm's
But the width is not inches it would be 0.0984252 in inches
ok i can convert them to inches
well... ok... I guess you could use that kinda tiny, but you'd end up doing some calculations with it
Height – 10 ½ inches =26.67 Width – ¼ centimeters Length – 8 1/8 inches =20.6375 that would be converted into inches
lemme 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|
Wait am i useing in or cm?
you're using... either unit, but you have to use the same for all, for the same of calculating the volume and surface area
ok got it
so.. that box has a width of 1, say hmm centimeters so width = 1cm length = 2cm height = 4cm |dw:1440462378549:dw| part 1
ok i understand
ohh ok that makes sense now
and i need to describe but what exactly do i describe
nvm its the shape
i can say....
hmm 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
4 and 6 is what i dont get
