Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. A cross section cuts a shape in half and is almost always parallel. If you take a prism and cut it in half down the middle, dw:1444156650699:dw The cross section then becomes a square. Just think about it. Cutting a prism in half, straight from the middle, parallel with the base (Bottom) will just make a square.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, the second one says perpendicular. Perpendicular means it forms a 90 degree angle. So it'll make a kind of "T" shape at the base. dw:1444156847678:dw What you're going to get is a rectangle, with respective opposite sides being equal. That is, A, B, C, D Where A = C and B = D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so is this the answer for part A? The name of the shape created by cross section is a square. If you take a prism and cut it in half down the middle, then it becomes a square. Cutting a prism in half, straight from the middle, parallel with the base (Bottom) will just make a square. Is this the answer for part B? The name of the shape created by cross section is a rectangle. Perpendicular means it forms a 90 degree angle. So it'll make a kind of "T" shape at the base. So what we are going to get is a rectangle, with opposite sides being equal.
