Medal!
Bonnie has a container in the shape of a rectangular pyramid. The formula for the surface area of the enclosed space is S = lw + 0.5Ph. Solve for P.
P = S – lw – 0.5h
P = S + lw + 0.5h
P = The quantity S minus l times w all divided by 0.5 times h
P = S divided by the quantity l times w plus 0.5 times h

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Firstly, Let's subtract lw from both sides as follows: S=lw + 0.5 Ph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0s (lw) = lw(lw) + 0.5 Ph this gives: slw = 0.5 Ph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Next, Ph really means P x h , and all we want is P, so we will need to divide both sides by h, as follows: slw/h = (0.5 Ph)/h

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now the h's on the righthand side cancel, and you are left with: slw/h = 0.5 P to get P that means we need to multiply both sides by 2 as follows: 2 x(slw/h) = 2 x 0.5 P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so our answer is 2(slw/h) = P or (2s 2lw)/h = P
