# Planimetrics - math word problems

Study plane measurements, including angles, distances, and areas. In other words - measurement and calculation of shapes in the plane. Perimeter and area of plane shapes.- Pit

Pit has shape of a truncated pyramid with rectangular bases and is 0.8 m deep. The length and width of the pit is the top 3 × 1.5 m bottom 1 m × 0.5 m. To paint one square meter of pit we use 0.6 l of green colour. How many liters of paint is needed when - Sphere and cone

Within the sphere of radius G = 33 cm inscribe cone with largest volume. What is that volume and what are the dimensions of the cone? - Pentagonal pyramid

Calculate the volume of a regular 5-side (pentaprism) pyramid ABCDEV; if |AB| = 7.7 cm and a plane ABV, ABC has angle 37 degrees. - Triangular prism

Plane passing through the edge AB and the center of segmet CC' of regular triangular prism ABCA'B'C', has angle with base 22 degrees, |AB| = 6 cm. Calculate the volume of the prism. - Mystery of stereometrie

Two regular tetrahedrons have surfaces 88 cm^{2}and 198 cm^{2}. In what ratio is their volumes? Write as a fraction and as a decimal rounded to 4 decimal places. - Cone and the ratio

Rotational cone has a height 23 cm and the ratio of the base surface to lateral surface is 7: 9. Calculate a surface of the base and the lateral surface. - Sails

We known heights 220, 165 and 132 of sail. It has triangular shape. What is the surface of the sail? - Box

Cardboard box shaped quadrangular prism with a rhombic base. Rhombus has a side 5 cm and one diagonal 8 cm long and height of the box is 12 cm. The box will open at the top. How many cm^{2}of cardboard we need to cover overlap and joints that are 5% of a - Pizza

Pizza with a diameter 50 cm have weight 559 g. What diameter will have a pizza weighing 855 g if it is make from the same cloth (same thickness....) and same decorated? - Funnel

The funnel has the shape of an equilateral cone. Calculate the surface wetted with water if we poured into the funnel 7.1 liters of water. - Truncated cone

Calculate the height of the rotating truncated cone with volume V = 1115 cm^{3}and a base radii r_{1}= 7.9 cm and r_{2}= 9.7 cm. - Prism

The base of the prism is a rhombus with a side 30 cm and height 27 cm. The height of the prism is 180% longer than the side length of the rhombus. Calculate the volume of the prism. - House roof

The roof of the house has the shape of a regular quadrangular pyramid with a base edge 17 m. How many m^{2}is needed to cover roof if roof pitch is 57° and we calculate 11% of waste, connections and overlapping of area roof? - Axial section

Axial section of the cylinder has a diagonal 31 cm long and we know that the area of the side and the area of base is in ratio 3:2. Calculate the height and radius of the cylinder base. - Tower

The top of the tower is a regular hexagonal pyramid with base edge 8 meters long and a height 5 meters. How many m^{2}of the sheet is required to cover the top of the tower if we count 8% of the sheet waste? - 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. - Posters

Column with posters in the form of a cylinder is 2 m high and its diameter is 1.7 m. What is the content area for which it is possible to stick posters? - Roller

Roller has a diameter of 0.96 m and a width 169 cm. How many m^{2}of road level when he turns 42-times? - Horizon

The top of a lighthouse is 19 m above the sea. How far away is an object which is just “on the horizon”? [Assume the earth is a sphere of radius 6378.1 km.] - Elevation

What must be the elevation of an observer in order that he may be able to see an object on the earth 536 km away? Assume the earth to be a smooth sphere with radius 6378.1 km.
