1. The diagram shows an open tank for storing water, ABCDEF. The sides ABFE and CDEF are rectangles. The triangular ends ADE and BCF are isosceles, and Angle AED = BFC = 90deg. The ends ADE and BCF are vertical and EF is horizontal
Given AD = x metres,
a. Show that the area of triangle ADE is 0.25x^2 m^2
b.Given that the capacity of the container is 4000m^3 and that the total are of the two triangular and two rectangular sides of the container is S m^2.
Show that S = (x^2)/2 + {16000(2^1/2)}/x
The question looks straightforward, i did indeed try it but couldn't figure out the solution.
Plz find attached figure as question 8 in jpeg.
Any help or hint will be much appreciated.
