Q. Which of the following solids is NOT a polyhedron?
Q. What is the minimum number of orthogonal drawings needed to construct a perspective drawing?
Q. What kinds of solids are the Platonic solids?
All of the above
Q. What is the difference between an orthogonal drawing and a net?
A net only shows one side of the solid, while an orthogonal drawing shows a corner view of the solid
A net shows a corner view of the solid, while an orthogonal drawing shows one side of the solid
A net shows all the faces of the solid as flattened-out 2D shapes, while an orthogonal drawing shows a corner view of the solid
A net shows all the faces of the solid as flattened-out 2D shapes, while an orthogonal drawing shows one side of the solid
There is no difference between a net and an orthogonal drawing
Q. Euler's formula says that the number of faces plus the number of vertices in a polyhedron equals the number of edges plus 2. Euler's formula does NOT apply to which of the following solids?
None of the above
Q. On a starry, starry night, you look up in the sky and see an enormous spaceship that looks like a cone. It lands in front of you and you see that it's made of sheet metal. If the height of the cone is 50 feet and its base has a radius of 20 feet, the spaceship is made out of about how much sheet metal?
3100 square feet
3800 square feet
4600 square feet
6300 square feet
11,000 square feet
Q. The aliens step out of their spaceship. They look like square pyramids with green, rubbery skin. If the aliens are 4 feet tall and have a square base of 4 square feet, how much rubbery green skin do they have?
4 square feet
8 square feet
16 square feet
16.5 square feet
20.5 square feet
Q. You try to run away, but the aliens generate a blue force field around you in the shape of a cylinder. Now you're frozen in midair. The radius of the cylinder is 3 feet and it's 6.5 feet tall. How much surface area does the force field cover (including the bottom)?
118 square feet
127 square feet
151 square feet
179 square feet
240 square feet
Q. The aliens tell you that Zargon, their home planet, has a diameter of 10,000 miles and is completely covered in gold foil. (Don't ask us why. They're the aliens, here.) How much surface area does the gold foil cover approximately?
78,500,000 square miles
314,000,000 square miles
523,000,000 square miles
1,257,000,000 square miles
4,189,000,000 square miles
Q. Before the aliens release you and return to Zargon, they give you a walkie-talkie in the shape of a rectangular prism so that you can communicate with them in the future. If the walkie-talkie is 3 inches long, 2 inches wide, and 5 inches tall (with an antenna for long-distance communication), what's its surface area?
30 square inches
60 square inches
62 square inches
68 square inches
72 square inches
