From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!

Surface Area and Volume

Surface Area and Volume

Surface Area and Volume: Coordination Is Key True or False

1. Solids of which type are always similar to one another? -> Rectangular prisms
2. One sphere has a radius of 3 and another has a volume of 36π. Which of the following is true? -> The spheres are congruent
3. Two similar solids have a scale factor of 4. If the smaller one has a surface area of 10 ft2, what is the surface area of the larger one? -> 80 ft2
4. A cylinder has a radius of 1 and a height of 4. If another cylinder is 3 times larger, what is the volume of the larger cylinder? -> 108π
5. Which of the following is NOT true about ordered triples? -> They consist of three numbers representing the w, x, and y axes
6. If your car can get you from A to B, find the distance between A (-4, 9, 5) and B (3, 1, -1). Make sure to fill up the tank first though. -> 10.8
7. A rectangular prism has vertices at (0, 0, 0) and (3, 2, 5). All of the following are vertices of this prism EXCEPT -> (3, 0, 0)
8. Find the volume of a triangular prism with vertices at A (0, 0, 0), B (5, 0, 0), C (3, 2, 0), D (0, 0, 7), E (5, 0, 7), and F (3, 2, 7). A drawing would probably be helpful. -> 35 units3
9. One baseball has a circumference of 9.4 inches. Another baseball has a volume of 14.1 in3. Which of the following is true about the spheres? -> The two baseballs are congruent (the same size and shape).
10. A cube has vertices at (0, 0, 0) and (4, 4, 4). If those vertices aren't on the same face and the entire cube gets dilated (expanded) by a scale factor of 2, what will its surface area be? -> 64 units2
