 Question 14681: I have received this question in my Magnet program class and I have been trying to figure it out for 3 days. Please HELP! The equatorial daimeter of the Earth is 7,923 miles. The equatorial diameter of Jupiter is 88,944 miles. Use the fact that 1 mile = 1.61 kilometers to convert each diameter to kilometers. Round your answers to the nearest whole kiolmeter. Then use the formula V=4/3 pi cube to determine the volume of each planet. Your answer should be inter terms of km cube. Finally, answer the question of how many complete Earths will fit inside of Jupiter. (Disregard Negative space). Problem should be solved by diameter conversions, volume of the panets and final answer. Please show all work. Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6287)

 Question 24068: A special cushion designed to go in a corner is shaped like a triangular pyramid. The base is a right triangle with sides of length 42 cm, 56 cm, 70 cm. If the height of the pillow is 64 cm, what is the volume? our teacher said to use this equation for a triangular base: [(base*height)(divided by 2)(* height) then, divide the answer by 3] He said that u use find the area of the base * the height, / by 3. He said that you just find the volume like you would for a rectangular prism and divide the answer by three. I tryed to find the answer a couple of times, but using the information of the base's lengths, i couldn't find the area of the base. Therefore, I couldn't finish the equation to find the answer.

 Question 25284: I am stumped. I have the following equation and can only get so far because this is the first time I am working with pie. I will show you what I have and would greatly appreciate it if you can show me step by step how i am supposed to do it so that I can refer to it and finish the rest of my assignment i would be ever so grateful. The volume of a cylinder (think about the volume of a can) is given by V=pie r²h where r is the radius of the cylinder and h is the height of the cylinder. Suppose the volume of the can is 100 cubic centimeters. Write h as a function of r. this is what I got: 100=pie r²h 100=3.14r²h I am lost after that. Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6287)

 Question 25283: I think I have submitted this before but I have really been confused. I did some of it but think I did it wrong as the answer doesn't make sense.

Let x denote the length of each side of the square to be cut out. Find the function V that represents the volume of the box in terms of x.
