O_O sorry mate i don't know love

- jdoe0001

hmmm what's the context?

- anonymous

I thought it would mean like the width and length

- jdoe0001

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

- jdoe0001

hmmm ok... so.. are you meant to get a box at first? just any box?

- jdoe0001

or.... where does the box come from? UPS? Fedex? closet?

- anonymous

It can be anything as long as it is a rectangular prism

- jdoe0001

ok... so start there then, pick one

- anonymous

I picked a notebooke

1. List the dimensions of your box. Be sure to include the units (in, cm, ft., etc.). <---- do that then

- anonymous

Height – 10 ½ inches
Width – ¼ centimeters
Length – 8 1/8 inches

- anonymous

I dont understand step 2

- jdoe0001

hmmm it'd be simpler to use the same unit of measurement you know, for all dimensions :)

- jdoe0001

1/4 cm... hmm how much is that... hmmm well
is easier to just convert the inches to cm's

- anonymous

But the width is not inches
it would be 0.0984252 in inches

- anonymous

ok i can convert them to inches

- jdoe0001

hmmm

- jdoe0001

well... ok... I guess you could use that
kinda tiny, but you'd end up doing some calculations with it

- anonymous

Height – 10 ½ inches =26.67
Width – ¼ centimeters
Length – 8 1/8 inches =20.6375
that would be converted into inches

- jdoe0001

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|

- anonymous

Wait am i useing in or cm?

- jdoe0001

you're using... either unit, but you have to use the same for all, for the same of calculating the volume and surface area

- anonymous

ok got it

- jdoe0001

so.. that box has a width of 1, say hmm centimeters
so width = 1cm
length = 2cm
height = 4cm |dw:1440462378549:dw| part 1

- anonymous

ok i understand

- jdoe0001

|dw:1440462432673:dw|

- jdoe0001

part 2

- anonymous

ohh ok that makes sense now

- anonymous

and i need to describe but what exactly do i describe

- anonymous

nvm its the shape

- anonymous

i can say....

- jdoe0001

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

Ok

4 and 6 is what i dont get
