### I need to figure surface area for

• A.

How much tissue will fit in a tissue box

• B.

Wrapping a present

• C.

Table cloth

• D.

B. Wrapping a present
Explanation
The correct answer is "wrapping a present" because when wrapping a present, you need to measure the surface area of the paper or wrapping material to ensure that it is large enough to cover the entire gift. This involves calculating the area of each side of the present and adding them together to determine the total surface area needed.

### What is the volume of a rectangular prism that is 1 cm. by 2 cm. by 3 cm.?

• A.

6 cu. cm.

• B.

6 sq. cm.

A. 6 cu. cm.
Explanation
The volume of a rectangular prism can be calculated by multiplying the length, width, and height of the prism. In this case, the length is 1 cm, the width is 2 cm, and the height is 3 cm. Multiplying these values together (1 cm x 2 cm x 3 cm) gives us a volume of 6 cubic centimeters.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### If you enlarge a rectangular prism with dimensions of 1 cm. by 2 cm. by 3 cm. by a scale factor of 3, what will its new dimensions be?

• A.

3 cm. by 6 cm. by 9 cm.

• B.

3 cm. by 5 cm. by 6 cm.

A. 3 cm. by 6 cm. by 9 cm.
Explanation
When you enlarge a rectangular prism with dimensions of 1 cm by 2 cm by 3 cm by a scale factor of 3, each dimension is multiplied by the scale factor. Therefore, the new dimensions will be 1 cm x 3 = 3 cm, 2 cm x 3 = 6 cm, and 3 cm x 3 = 9 cm.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### How many square feet of sand can fit into a sandbox that is 8 feet by 8 feet and 1 foot high?

• A.

64 square feet

• B.

17 square feet

A. 64 square feet
Explanation
The sandbox is 8 feet by 8 feet, so the area of the sandbox is 8 feet multiplied by 8 feet, which equals 64 square feet. The height of the sandbox is 1 foot, but since we are looking for the area, we do not need to consider the height. Therefore, the correct answer is 64 square feet.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### How many square feet of cement will it take to fill a hole that is 6" by 3 feet by 6 feet?

• A.

108 sq. ft.

• B.

9 sq. ft.

B. 9 sq. ft.
Explanation
To find the square footage of the hole, we need to multiply the length and width of the hole. The hole is 6 inches by 3 feet by 6 feet. We need to convert the measurements to the same unit, so let's convert 6 inches to feet. Since there are 12 inches in a foot, 6 inches is equal to 0.5 feet. Now we can calculate the square footage by multiplying 0.5 feet by 3 feet by 6 feet, which equals 9 square feet. Therefore, it will take 9 square feet of cement to fill the hole.

### Which rectangular prism has a larger surface area? Prism A: Dimensions are 5 by 4 by 2 Prism B: Dimensions are 6 by 3 by 2

• A.

Prism A

• B.

Prism B

• C.

They have the same Surface Area

A. Prism A
Explanation
Prism A has a larger surface area because the formula for surface area of a rectangular prism is 2lw + 2lh + 2wh. By plugging in the dimensions of Prism A (5, 4, and 2), we get a surface area of 64. For Prism B, with dimensions 6, 3, and 2, the surface area is 52. Therefore, Prism A has a larger surface area.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### Which rectangular prism has a larger volume? Prism A: Dimensions are 5 by 4 by 2 Prism B: Dimensions are 6 by 3 by 2

• A.

Prism A

• B.

Prism B

• C.

They have the same volume.

A. Prism A
Explanation
Prism A has a larger volume because the product of its dimensions (5 x 4 x 2) is 40, while the product of Prism B's dimensions (6 x 3 x 2) is 36. Therefore, Prism A has a greater volume than Prism B.

### What is the surface area of the pyramid below?

• A.

216

• B.

648

• C.

225

• D.

324

C. 225
Explanation
The correct answer is 225. The surface area of a pyramid is calculated by finding the sum of the areas of all its faces. In this case, since the question does not provide any measurements or dimensions for the pyramid, it is not possible to calculate the exact surface area. Therefore, the explanation for the given answer cannot be determined.

### What is the volume of the pyramid below?

• A.

112

• B.

116.48

• C.

74.24

• D.

37.33

D. 37.33
Explanation
The volume of a pyramid is calculated by multiplying the area of the base by the height and dividing the result by 3. Since the question does not provide the dimensions of the pyramid, it is not possible to calculate the volume. Therefore, an explanation for the given correct answer is not available.

### To find the radius of a cylinder you should measure the diameter and divide by 2 ?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
To find the radius of a cylinder, you need to measure the diameter and then divide it by 2. This is because the diameter is the distance across the widest part of the circle, while the radius is the distance from the center of the circle to any point on its edge. By dividing the diameter by 2, you can determine the radius of the cylinder accurately. Therefore, the statement is true.
