- Home cleaning
Mr. Smith is cleaning up a big mess at home. In the closet, he finds a solution that is 5% bleach, and another stronger solution that is 20% bleach. For this particular job, he needs 600mL of 15% bleach. How much of each type (to the nearest mL) should he.
If water flows into the pool by two inlets, fill the whole for 18 hours. First inlet filled pool 10 hour longer than second. How long pool is filled with two inlets separately?
- TV transmitter
The volume of water in the rectangular swimming pool is 6998.4 hectoliters. The promotional leaflet states that if we wanted all the pool water to flow into a regular quadrangle with a base edge equal to the average depth of the pool, the prism would have.

- Transforming cuboid
Cuboid with dimensions 8 cm, 13 and 16 cm is converted into a cube with the same volume. What is its edge length?
Water pipe has a cross-section 1405 cm2. An hour has passed 756 m3 of water. How much water flows through the pipe with cross-section 300 cm2 per 15 hours if water flow same speed?
Area of the side of two cylinders is same rectangle of 50 cm × 11 cm. Which cylinder has a larger volume and by how much?
- Cuboid diagonal
Calculate the volume and surface area of the cuboid ABCDEFGH, which sides abc has dimensions in the ratio of 9:3:8 and if you know that the wall diagonal AC is 86 cm and angle between AC and the body diagonal AG is 25 degrees.
- Sand pile
Auto sprinkled with sand to approximately conical shape. Workers wanted to determine the volume (amount of sand) and therefore measure the circumference of the base and the length of both sides of the cone (over the top). What is the volume of the sand c
