The coordinates A(0, 0), B(0, 5) and C(3, 0) are graphed and connected together. What 3dimensional shape will be created when this shape is rotated about the yaxis? Provide an explanation and proof for your answer to receive full credit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes because there are only 3 points that are plotted and connected so there are 3 sides of the shape and there is only one shape with 3 sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would still be a triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes you'll have a triangle. If you rotated that triangle around the y axis, you'll get a 3D cone. It might be hard to imagine, so grab a piece of paper, cut out a triangle, then spin the triangle around its axis.
