Question about The Office Equipment & Supplies

Hi Carolyn

This is easy peasy.

A squared plus B squared = C squared

So, 4 squared (16) + 4 squared (16)= C squared

C= square root of 32 or 5.66

Link below provides a calculator so you can do it yourself.

The formula to calculate the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is a^2 + b^2 = c^2 or in words, a squared plus b squared is equal to c squared. The most common mistake is that students make the hypotenuse a squared or b squared. The hypotenuse has to be c squared. Thus, when figuring out the sides of a right-angled triangle, always make sure the hypotenuse is the longest side.

For example, a triangle with sides of length 3 and 4, calculate the hypotenuse. Let a be 3 and b be 4. 3^2 + 4^2 = c^2 or 9+16 = c^2, or 25 = c^2. Now take the square root of both sides and we get c = 5.

There isn't one. Square foot is a unit of area, cubic yard is a unit of volume.

What's the volume in cubic yards of a room that's 10 feet by 12 feet? That depends on how high the ceiling is. Without the third dimension, there is no way to convert.

A pyramid has 5 sides including the base. If the base is a rectangle L long and W wide, its area is L*W.

The other sides are triangles. If the height of the pyramid is H, the triangles that are L wide at the base will have a height of the square root of half of W squared plus H squared, or SQRT((.5*W)^2+H^2) and the two that are W wide at the base will have a height of SQRT((.5*L)^2+H^2). The area of a triangle is .5*height*base, so the total surface two triangles with the same height and base is 2*.5*height*base = height*base.

So, the total surface area of a pyramid L long by W wide by H tall would be:

L*W (the area of the base)

+ L*SQRT((.5*W)^2+H^2) (the area of the 2 triangles with base L)

+ W*SQRT((.5*L)^2+H^2) (the area of the 2 triangles with base W)

Hope this is helpful!

Here is to get you started. To increase the size of the image do a CTRL Plus (+) in your browser.

You need to calculate the slant height of the pyramid for the formula of the lateral area. You should find a value of** (1/2)*SQRT(203) **or about 7.1239 cm

You need to calculate the altitude (height) of the pyramid from the apex (summit) to the center of the base triangle (center of inscribed circle, barycenter, orthocenter). The hypotenuse of such triangle is the slant height. One leg is the altitude (to be found),**the measure of the second leg is (1/3) the altitude** **of the equilateral triangle** that forms the base. You should find (1/3) m MH= (1/3)* **(11/2)*SQRT(3)**

1. Calculate the area of the base (use a formula for the equilateral triangle or the general formula for a triangle: you have its height MH ).

2. Lateral area = 3 times the area of triangle Triangle ECD (in yellow above).

3. Total area = area of base + lateral area.

4. Volume= (1/3)(Area of base)* (height of pyramid)

Since you have
the coordinates of the three vertices, the most straightforward method
is to calculate the length of the sides using the distance formula

d(P_1,P_2)=SQRT(**(X_1-X_2)^2**+(**Y_1-Y_2)^2**)

where SQRT is the**square root function**, X_1, Y_1) are the coordinates of point P_1, etc.

With the three lengths available, use Heron's (sometimes called Hero's) to find the area.

**Here is Heron's formula.**

Let's call the lengths**a, b, **and** c**

Let p be the semi-perimeter p= (a+b+c)/2

Then

Area= SQRT [**p(p-a)(p-b)(p-c)** ]

Make sure that there is a matching ) parenthesis to the one in the SQRT.

Alternatively,

You can choose the base as the side opposite the vertex (0,0)

Calculate the equation of the line that supports the base.

Calculate the equation of the line issuing from (0,0) and perpendicular t the base.

Calculate the coordinates of the intersection point , call it H, of the base and its perpendicular line (coming from (0,0)).

Calculate the distance OH, that is the height relative to the chosen base.

Use the formula**Area= base*height/2**

Now it is up to you to choose one of the two methods and calculate the area of that triangle. The second method involves more calculations than the first, and more possibilities of errors. Good Luck

o find the area of a triangle, multiply the base by the height, and then divide by 2. The division by 2 comes from the fact that aparallelogram can be divided into 2 triangles. For example, in the diagram to the left, the area of each triangle is equal to one-half the area of the parallelogram.

Since the area of a parallelogram is , the area of a triangle must be one-half the area of a parallelogram. Thus, the formula for the area of a triangle is: or where is the base, is the height and**ยท** means multiply.
The base and height of a triangle must be perpendicular to each other. In each of the examples below, the base is a side of the triangle. However, depending on the triangle, the height may or may not be a side of the triangle. For example, in the right triangle in Example 2, the height is a side of the triangle since it is perpendicular to the base. In the triangles in Examples 1 and 3, the lateral sides are not perpendicular to the base, so a dotted line is drawn to represent the height.

Since the area of a parallelogram is , the area of a triangle must be one-half the area of a parallelogram. Thus, the formula for the area of a triangle is: or where is the base, is the height and

In the Windows calculator application located in the accessories folder in the start menu, you can calculate square yardage by using area formulas such as length times width for a rectangle/square. To enter this with a keyboard you would enter (the length)*(the height) as long as your units are in feet or yards you will get the answer in square feet or yards. The Windows 7/vista calculators have built in conversion factors for yards and feet that can be found by pressing view>unit conversion.

Hello

OK, the formula for the Area of a triangle is A=0.5xBasexHight. For this formula to be applicable you will need to have a 90 degree angle in this triangle.

For example:

Base = 8

Hight = 15

A = 0.5x8x15

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

Andrea

Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

- This lot does not have the form or a regular quadrilateral (rectangle, square, parallelogram, etc.)
- So you cannot calculate its area, you have to know exactly the shape it has.
- With polygons, one usually cuts them into triangles.
- You have to cut it into two triangles,
- measure the base and the height of each triangle,
- use the area formula for the triangle ( area = heightX base/2)
- After you calculate the areas of both triangles, you add them to get the area of the the whole lot in ft^2.
- Using the conversion formula between acres and ft^2 which is 1 acre=43560 ft^2, you divide the area of the lot in square feet by the number 43560 ft^2 and express the result as a percentage or a fraction .

Thanks for using FixYa.
