The volume of a truncated rectangular pyramidal pond 2016-05-13
Paul pose la question :
How do you calculate a partially filled truncated rectangular pyramid if you always know the bottom rectangle, the maximum height top rectangle perimeter, but have a varying height. Similar to filling up a pond you know the current height and dimensions at the max rectangle how do you calculate it half full i.e. 10x30 outside perimeter with a 2x8 base and a max height of 6ft how do you calculate it at 3ft without re-measuring the top perimeter. Thanks, Paul

Parallelogram area 2015-08-04
Nigel pose la question :
To find the area of a parallelogram you multiply the base by the height of the parallogram, the height being determined by an imaginary line drawn at right angles to the base. However if I made a parallelogram with joints at each corner and maipulated it to an upright position where the base and sides were at 90 degrees to each other,, I could then simply multiply the base times the height to get the area. Since the sloping side of the parallelogram does not vary in my imaginary jointed model, why can I not simply multiply the base by the sloping side to get the area in the same way that I multiply the base times the height of a square to find its area ? I cannot find the answer to this on the internet although I have searched.

The degree of a polynomial 2015-01-05
Nichole pose la question :
How do I determine the degree of polynomials? I've searched this on sites but they are all so confusing! Is there a simple explanation or way to find what the degree is? Some examples are: 6x^4 10x^2yz^5 and 3m^2n^7-10m^8. I also have to say that I am under the impression that this symbol ^ means the number after it is an exponent.

Expressing 0.5% 2012-02-06
Kenneth pose la question :
Hello:

It is correct to express 0.5% as 5 tenths of one percent.

Is it also correct to express 0.5% as 5 tenths of one-hundred percentage points or 5 tenths of one percentage point?

I think it would be 5 tenths of one percentage point because 5 tenths of one-hundred percentage points would be 50 percentage points, but I'm not sure.

I thank you for your reply.

Dividing a polygon into triangles 2011-04-16
Foxie pose la question :
You have a given regular polygon with n vertices and you divide it into triangles(using the vertices of the polygon) which each share at least one side with the polygon. How many distinct ways can you divide the polygon if its vertices are numbered? For n=3 it's 1 way, for n=4 it's 2 ways for n=5 5 ways, I'm not quite sure but think that for n=6 it's 12 ways... thanks in advance!

Calculating a person's volume 2007-01-20
James pose la question :
Hi i am currently trying to calculate my volume. I have tried to do this using a tank of water and measuring the difference. i worked out that my volume is 112 litres. my question is that i want to make a box that would hold my volume and so i need to convert it into centimeters. i know that there are 100 cm^2 in a litre. if i divide this by 4 i would be 91x91x91ft. is this simply to do with density. if so how could i make this more realistic?
