    Calculate volume of irregular triangular pyramid using differences between prisms

    Here's a picture to better depict what I'm talking about: The red shape is the irregular triangular pyramid, the blue shape is the triangular prism. All vertices of the pyramid have different z-values (except the ones shared with the prism). I could of course calculate the volume of the...

    Need to solve What is the area of P ∞

    Let P0 be an equilateral triangle of area 10. Each side of P0 is trisected, and the corners are snipped off, creating a new polygon (in fact, a hexagon) P1. What is the area of P1? Now repeat the process to P1 – i.e. trisect each side and snip off the corners – to obtain a new polygon P2...

    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...

    Triangle Circle Problem

    Hi, I have a small math problem I am trying to figure out, and as it has been a few years since I've done much trig I'm wondering if I could get some help I have 2 circles of radius=300m set parallel to each other that are bisecting. I know top bisection is 600m from a north side of a building...

    Triangle Question Regarding Altitude and Segment Lengths

    RE is an altitude of triangle RST. Find the measures of MN, NE, and RT. I would appreciate it deeply if someone could help me figure out NE and RT. I already know that MN is 14, but I don't know how to find the two other segments.

    Using Congruent Triangles (Two-Column Proof)

    In this exercise, there is one piece of unnecessary information. State what information you do not need for the proof. Then give a two-column proof that does not use that piece of information. Given: LM is congruent to LN; KM is congruent KN; KO bisects MKN; Prove: LO bisects MLN. This...

    angle outside triangle

    this is actually mohr's circle formula, forget about the theory,let's focus on the mathematics part. I couldnt understand why the tan( 2 θs1) = -(σx -σy) / 2τxy ? 2θs1 is outside the triangle theorically, tan(180-α )= -tan( α ) , so tan( 2 θs1) = -(σx -σy) / 2τxy , the vertical staright line of...
