    Diameter of an asteroid

    I cannot figure out this astronomy problem. Suppose the average mass of each of 20000 asteroids in the solar system is 10^17kg. Assuming a spherical shape and a density of 2830 kg/m^3, estimate the diameter of an asteroid having this average mass. I need to find diameter in km. Thank you for...

    Transformation notation question

    I taught middle school math and I'm somewhat familiar with transformations, but I have no idea what the notations in this problem mean. I looked in two geometry books with no luck. Google, no luck. Khan Academy, well, you get the idea. I'm tutoring two students who are doing distance...

    How do you describe the fact that all triangle with base are measure of theta

    How do you describe the fact that all triangles with base one are measure of theta(an angle)? The only reason I can think of is because the base is one. I have three measures of three altitudes $h_0,h_1,h_2$ where sides $a,b,c$ are the constant lengths of all triangles and base $c=1$ and...

    is this possible? angles and stuff

    So one of my friends sent me this thing today and I was able to figure out all the questions but 4 and 5. I know she's wrong for the other questions (all 3 I believe) but neither of us could figure out what the correct answers to 4 and 5 were. I don't think it's possible but I figure I'd let a...

    Sides of a dodecahedron

    Hello, I'm having a little construction problem: Is it possible to trace all edges of a dodecahedron (or alternatively an icosahedron) with one continuing line? So imagine a dodecahedron made up of 12 wooden pentagons. To smoothly cover up the cracks between them, I would now like to attach a...

    Rectangle co-ordinates on resize

    Hi, I have 2 rectangles as in the attached image. Blue Rect(Lets say, w by h -> 300 x 80) There's a Red Rect inside Blue rect(Lets say, co-ordinates -> Top Left point(75,15) (w by h -> 48 x 23). Now if the blue rect is resized to (w by h = 128 x 32), what would be the co-ordinates and width x...

    Congruence and Similarity- Explain?

    Hello! :) I took this test a week or two ago and wanted to go over all my wrong answers in preparation for another test coming up, but this problem seems to have no explanation as to how they got the answer 1600. Now, I realize since this is a congruency problem I have to do some kind of work...

    Finding angle of parallelogram with circle passing through 3 vertices

    Given the above construction of parallelogram ABCD, with point E between B and C lying on the circle, the sine of angle A must be greater than √(x)/y where x and y are positive integers. What is the greatest possible value of √(x)/y? Answer: √(5)/3 At first I considered using the law of cosines...
