Explanation:

Each pendant is made up of a rectangle and a triangle.

Area of the rectangle = length x breadth = 3 x 1 = 3 ft^{2}

Area of the triangle = 1/2 x base x height = 1/2 x 1 x 1 = 0.5 ft^{2}

The total area of the pendant = 3+0.5 = 3.5 ft^{2}

Number of pendants = 12

Area of the pendants = 12 x 3.5 = 42 ft^{2}

Cost of each square foot of the pendant = $1.25

Total cost for all the 12 pendants = 12 x $1.25 = $52.50

Analyze Relationships

The figure shown is made up of a triangle and a square. The perimeter of the figure is 56 inches. What is the area of the figure? Explain.

_____ in^{2}

Answer: 192 in^{2}

Explanation:

Given:

The perimeter of the figure = 56 inches

The figure is divided into a square and a triangle.

10 + 10 + 3s = 56

3s = 36

s = 12

The area of a triangle = 1/2 x 12 x 8 = 48 in^{2}

The area of a square = 12 x 12 = 144 in^{2}

The design for the palladium window shown includes a semicircular shape at the top. The bottom is formed by squares of equal size. A shade for the window will extend 4 inches beyond the perimeter of the window, shown by the dashed line around the window. Each square in the window has an area of 100 in^{2}.

a. What is the area of the window? Use 3.14 for π.

_____ in^{2}

Answer: a) 2228 in^{2}

Explanation:

Area of the square = 100 in^{2}

side x side = 100

Side = 10 in

Since the side of each square is 10 in and there are 4 squares.

The side length of the larger square (s) = 40 in

Area of the larger square = side x side = 40 x 40 = 1600 in^{2}

Since the side of each square is 10 in and there are 2 squares.

The radius of the semi-circle = 20 in

Area of the semi-circle = 1/2(πr^{2}) = 1/2(3.14 x 20^{2}) = 628 in^{2}

The area of the window = 1600 + 628 = 2228 in^{2}

Question 15.

b. What is the area of the shade? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.

_____ in^{2}

Answer: b) 3016 in^{2}

Explanation:

The shade extends 4 inches beyond the shapes so the length of the bottom rectangle is 40+4+4 = 48 in

The length extends below the original square.

The height is now = 40+4 = 44 in

The radius of the semi-circle = 20+4 = 24 in

The new area of the figure = 48(44) + 1/2(3.14 x 24^{2}) = 2112 + 904.32 = 3016.32 = 3016 in^{2}

Question 1.

Total surface area: _____ ft^{2}

Answer: 150 ft^{2}

Explanation:

The base is a triangle with side lengths of 8 ft, 5 ft, 5 ft so the perimeter of the base = P = 8+5+5 = 18 ft

The height of the prism = 7 ft

The base is a triangle.

Area of the triangle = 1/2 (8) (3) = 12 ft^{2}

The surface area formula for a prism is S = Ph + 2b

P = Perimeter = 18 h = height = 7 b = base = area of the triangle = 12

The surface area of the prism = 18(7) + 2(12) = 126 + 24 = 150 ft^{2}

Question 2.

Total surface area: _____ m^{2}

Answer: 503 m^{2}

Explanation:

Given:

Dimensions of the cuboid:

Length = 11 m

Breadth = 9 m

Height = 7 m

The surface area of the cuboid = 2(lb+bh+hl) = 2(11 x 9 + 9 x 7 + 7 x 11) = 478m^{2
}

The dimensions of the cube:

Length of the side = 2.5 m

The surface area of the cube = 6a^{2} = 6 x 2.5 x 2.5 = 37.5 m^{2}

The surface area of the rectangular prism = 2.5 x 2.5 = 6.25

The surface area of the figure = The overlapping area is the area of the base of the cube

Question 7.

The doghouse shown has a floor, but no windows. Find the total surface area of the doghouse, including the door.

_____ ft^{2}

Answer: 66ft^{2}

Explanation:

Perimeter of the pentagon base (P) = 2(2.5) + 2(2) + 3 = 5 + 4 + 3 = 12

Area of the pentagon base by adding the area of the triangle and the area of the rectangle (B) = 1/2(3)(2) + 2(3) = 9

Height (h) = 2 + 2 = 4

The surface area of the figure = Ph + 2B = 12(4) + 2(9) = 48 + 18 = 66ft^{2}

**Marco and Elaine are building a stand like the one shown to display trophies. Use the figure for 10–11.**

Question 10.

What is the surface area of the stand?

_____ ft^{2}

Answer: 58 ft^{2}

Explanation:

Top:

Perimeter = P = 4(1) = 4

Base = B = 1(1) = 1

Height = h = 3

Top surface area = Ph + 2B = 4(3) + 2(1) = 14 ft^{2}

Bottom :

Perimeter = P = 2(7) + 2(1) = 14 + 2 = 16

Base = B = 7(1) = 7

Height = h = 2

Top surface area = Ph + 2B = 16(2) + 2(7) = 46 ft^{2}

Overlapping area = 1(1) = 1

The surface area of the figure = The surface area of the top + The surface area of the bottom – the overlapping area = 14 + 46 – 2 = 60 – 2 = 58 ft^{2}

Question 11.

Critique Reasoning

Marco and Elaine want to paint the entire stand silver. A can of paint covers 25 square feet and costs $6.79. They set aside $15 for paint. Is that enough? Explain.

_____

Answer: No

Explanation:

Since the surface area is 58 ft^{2}, they will need 3 cans of paint. Since each can paint 25 ft^{2} and we cannot buy a fraction of cans.

3 cans would then cost 6.79 x 3 = 20.37 so this is not enough.

Radius: 2 in

Height: 9 in

The total surface area of the cylinder = 2πr(r+h) = 2 x 22/7 x 2 (2 + 9) = 138.28 in^{2}

The total number of square inches needed for 1,500 oatmeal boxes = 1,500 x 138.28 = 207,300 in^{2}

1 ft = 12 in

(1 ft)^{2} = (12 in)^{2}

1 ft^{2} = 144 in^{2}

The total number of square feet needed for 1,500 oatmeal boxes (to the nearest whole number)

= 207,300/144 = 1440 ft^{2}

Question 16.

A prism is made of centimeter cubes. How can you find the surface area of the prism in Figure 1 without using a net or a formula? How does the surface area change in Figures 2, 3, and 4? Explain.

Type below:

______________

Answer: The surface area for the first 3 figures is the same. The surface area for figure 4 is greater than the surface area of figures 1 – 3.

Explanation:

The surface area of the first 3 figures is the same. The 3 new faces in figure 2 have the same areas as the 3 visible faces that were removed when the top corner cube was removed. The surface area is then the same as it is in figure 1. Similarly, the areas of the new visible faces in figure 3 are equal to the areas of the visible faces removed from removing the corner cubes so the surface areas are the same as in figure 1. The surface area for figure 4 is greater than the surface area of figures 1 – 3. Removing the cube removed 2 of the visible faces (one from the top and one from the front side) but added 4 visible faces so the surface area increases.

Answer: 856 in^{2}

Explanation:

Height of the top prism = 10/2 = 5

Length of the top prism = 16/2 = 8

Width of the top prism = 8/2 = 4

Perimeter = 2l + 2w = 2(8) + 2(4) = 16 + 8 = 24 in

B = lw = 8(4) = 32 in

Surface area of top prism= Ph + 2B = 24(5) + 2(32) = 184 in^{2}

Height of the prism = 10

Length of the prism = 16

Width of the prism = 8

Perimeter = 2l + 2w = 2(16) + 2(8) = 32 + 16 = 48 in

B = lw = 16(8) = 128 in

Surface area of bottom prism= Ph + 2B = 48(10) + 2(128) = 736 in^{2}

Area of overlapping region = 32 in^{2}

The total surface area of the prism

= Surface area of top prism + Surface area of bottom prism – 2[Area of overlapping region ]

= 184 + 736 – 2(32) = 856 in^{2}
