Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The red triangle in the video has a base of 8 inches and a height of 5 inches. What did they say the area of that triangle was?

    • A.

      40 square inches

    • B.

      20 square inches

    • C.

      4 square inches

    • D.

      45 square inches

    Correct Answer
    B. 20 square inches
    Explanation
    The area of a triangle is calculated by multiplying the base and height of the triangle and then dividing the result by 2. In this case, the base of the red triangle is 8 inches and the height is 5 inches. Therefore, the area of the triangle would be (8 * 5) / 2 = 40 / 2 = 20 square inches.

    Coach Huddleston needs to put a fence around the football field. The field measures 100 feet by 35 feet. How many feet of fencing does he need to buy? 

    • A.

      270 feet

    • B.

      135 feet

    • C.

      400 feet

    • D.

      140 feet

    Correct Answer
    A. 270 feet
    Explanation
    To calculate the amount of fencing needed, we need to find the perimeter of the football field. The formula for perimeter is 2(length + width). In this case, the length is 100 feet and the width is 35 feet. Plugging these values into the formula, we get 2(100 + 35) = 2(135) = 270 feet. Therefore, Coach Huddleston needs to buy 270 feet of fencing.
