In a regular quadrilateral pyramid, the height of the sidewall is equal to the length of the edge of the base. The content of the sidewall is 32 cm^{2}. What is the surface of the pyramid? - Electric work

Calculate the work done by the electric forces passing the current of 0.2 A through the bulb in 10 minutes if the bulb is connected to a 230 V power supply. - Two resistors

Two resistors 20 Ω and 60 Ω are connected in series and an external voltage of 400 V is connected to them. What are the electrical voltages on the respective resistors? Please comment! - Diamond area from diagonals

In the diamond ABCD is AB = 4 dm and the length of the diagonal is 6.4 dm long. What is the area of the diamond? - Lowest voltage

Three resistors with resistors R1 = 10 kΩ, R2 = 20 kΩ, R3 = 30 kΩ are connected in series and an external voltage U = 30 V is connected to them. On which resistor is the lowest voltage? - Height of pyramid

The pyramid ABCDV has edge lengths: AB = 4, AV = 7. What is its height? - What time is it?

What time is it, when there is 4 times less time left until midnight than the time that has elapsed since noon? What time is it, when one-fifth of the hours that have passed since midnight is equal to one-third of the hours that are missing by 12 o'clock? - Circle and square

An ABCD square with a side length of 100 mm is given. Calculate the radius of the circle that passes through the vertices B, C and the center of the side AD. - Double ratio

The mobile phone was twice gradually discounted in the ratio of 3: 2 1 half: 5 quarters. How much did it originally cost if the price was CZK 4,200 after a double discount? - Copper Cu wire

Copper wire with a diameter of 1 mm and a weight of 350 g is wound on a spool. Calculate its length if the copper density is p = 8.9 g/cm cubic. - Recruitment

- The circumference

The circumference and width of the rectangle are in a ratio of 5: 1. its area is 216cm2. What is its length? - Probability of failures

In certain productions, the probability of failures is 0.01. Calculate the probability that there will be more than 1 failure among the 100 selected products if we return the selected products to the file after the check.
