Ratio + volume - math problemsOn solving problems and tasks with proportionally, we recommend hint rule of three. Rule of three (proportionality) help solve examples of direct and inverse proportionality. Three members make possible to calculate the fourth - unknown member.
- Cuboid and ratio
Find the dimensions of a cuboid having a volume of 810 cm3 if the lengths of its edges coming from the same vertex are in ratio 2: 3: 5
- Water container
The cube-shaped container is filled to two-thirds of its height. If we pour 18 liters, it will be filled to three-fifths of the height. What is the volume of the whole container?
- Conical bottle
When a conical bottle rests on its flat base, the water in the bottle is 8 cm from it vertex. When the same conical bottle is turned upside down, the water level is 2 cm from its base. What is the height of the bottle?
- Axial section of the cone
The axial section of the cone is an isosceles triangle in which the ratio of cone diameter to cone side is 2: 3. Calculate its volume if you know its area is 314 cm square.
- Cone side
Calculate the volume and area of the cone whose height is 10 cm and the axial section of the cone has an angle of 30 degrees between height and the cone side.
- Right circular cone
The volume of a right circular cone is 5 liters. Calculate the volume of the two parts into which the cone is divided by a plane parallel to the base, one-third of the way down from the vertex to the base.
- Gasoline-oil ratio
The manufacturer of a scooter engine recommends a gasoline-oil fuel mixture ratio of 15 to 1. In a particular garage, we can buy pure gasoline and a gasoline-oil mixture, which is 75% gasoline. How much gasoline and how much of the gasoline-oil mix do w
- Ratio of volumes
If the heights of two cylindrical drums are in the ratio 7:8 and their base radii are in the ratio 4:3. What is the ratio of their volumes?
- Lateral surface area
The ratio of the area of the base of the rotary cone to its lateral surface area is 3: 5. Calculate the surface and volume of the cone, if its height v = 4 cm.
- Sphere radius
The radius of the sphere we reduce by 1/3 of the original radius. How much percent does the volume and surface of the sphere change?
- Cube cut
In the ABCDA'B'C'D'cube, it is guided by the edge of the CC' a plane witch dividing the cube into two perpendicular four-sided and triangular prisms, whose volumes are 3:2. Determine in which ratio the edge AB is divided by this plane.
Seawater has a density of 1025 kg/m3, ice 920 kg/m3. 8 liters of seawater froze and created a cube. Calculate the size of the cube edge.
- Octane value
I loaded 10L 95 octane gasoline and 5L 100 octane gasoline. What is the resulting octane value of the gasoline in the tank?
- Equilateral cylinder
A sphere is inserted into the rotating equilateral cylinder (touching the bases and the shell). Prove that the cylinder has both a volume and a surface half larger than an inscribed sphere.
- Cylinder melted into cuboid
A circular cylinder has area of cross section 56cm2 and the height is 10cm the cylinder is melted and made into a cuboid of base area 16cm2. What is the height of the cuboid?
- Ratio of edges
The dimensions of the cuboid are in a ratio 3: 1: 2. The body diagonal has a length of 28 cm. Find the volume of a cuboid.
- Cube, cuboid, and sphere
Volumes of a cube and a cuboid are in ratio 3: 2. Volumes of sphere and cuboid are in ratio 1: 3. In what ratio are the volumes of cube, cuboid, and sphere?
- Surface of cubes
Peter molded a cuboid 2 cm, 4cm, 9cm of plasticine. Then the plasticine split into two parts in a ratio 1:8. From each part made a cube. In what ratio are the surfaces of these cubes?
- Cooling liquid
Cooling liquid is diluted with water in a ratio of 3:2 (3 parts by volume of coolant with 2 volumes of water). How many volumes of coolant must be prepared for a total 0.7 dm3 (liters) of the mixture?
- Gas consumption
The vessel consume 100 tons of gas in 250 miles. How many fuel will the vessel consume if it travels 400 miles?
