Anthony drew a pentagon with each side measuring 6 inches. Carol drew hexagon with each side measuring 5 inches. Which shape has a greater perimeter? Write an equation to help explain your answer.

Answered by admin AT 05/12/2019 - 07:37 PM

Answer:

The perimeter of both shapes is equal.

Step-by-step explanation:

We have been Anthony drew a pentagon with each side measuring 6 inches.

We know that perimeter of a regular polygon is n times the side length of polygon, where n represents number of sides in a polygon.

We know that a pentagon has 5 sides, so perimeter of pentagon would be 5\times 6\text{ inches}=30\text{ inches}.

Carol drew hexagon with each side measuring 5 inches. We know that a hexagon has 6 sides, so perimeter of hexagon would be 6\times 5\text{ inches}=30\text{ inches}.

Therefore, the perimeter of both shapes is equal.

At another theater workers have to cut a new trap door.the door can be no mre than 130 sq ft in the area with whole number side lengths.they have to bring in 3 items to the stage.the first item is 6 feet,5 inches wide and 8 feet,9 inches long.the seconed item is 13 feet,4 inches wide and 7 feet, 8 inches long.the third item is 5 feet,6 inches wide and12 feet, 4 inches long. what size of trap door would you reccomend? what is the perimeter of the trap door

HhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhGiven:
trap door = 130 square feet.

1st item: 6ft 5in wide & 8ft 9in long 
⇒ (6ft * 12 in) + 5 in & (8ft *12 in) + 9 in
⇒ 77inches by 105 inches
⇒ 8,085 square inches

2nd item: 13ft 4in wide & 7ft 8in long
⇒ (13ft * 12in)+ 4 in & (7ft *12in) + 8 in
⇒ 160 inches by 92 inches
⇒ 14,720 square inches

3rd item: 5ft 6in wide & 12ft 4in long
⇒ (5 ft * 12in) + 6 in & (12ft * 12in) + 4in
⇒ 66 inches by 148 inches
⇒ 9,768 square inches

130 square feet convert to square inches.
130 sq. ft * 144 sq.in/sq.ft = 18,720 sq. in

18,720 sq. in / 160 inches = 117 inches

Length = 160 inches ; Width = 117 inches
Perimeter = 2(160 + 117)
P = 2(277)
P = 554 inches
P = 2(277)
P = 554 inches

Find the volume V or height H of the cylinder. Round your answer to the nearest tenth

X = multiplication
h = height
r^2 = radius squared

Formula of a cylinder: Pi x r^2 x height

So, if 176 = 3.14... times 4^2  times h
Then, 176 = 3.14 times 16h 
Next, 176 = 50.24h
Finally, 3.5 = h

You can then check your work by plugging 3.5 back in for the missing height and round to the nearest tenth. :) The answer should come out the same if done correctly.
