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. 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
