- Hexagon cut pyramid

Calculate the volume of a regular 6-sided cut pyramid if the bottom edge is 30 cm, the top edge is 12 cm, and the side edge length is 41 cm. - Calculate 5148

At a distance of 10 m from the river bank, they measured the base AB = 50 m parallel to the bank. Point C on the other bank of the river is visible from point A at an angle of 32°30' and from point B at an angle of 42°15'. Calculate the width of the river - Distance 11711

The observer sits in a room 2 m from a 50 cm wide window. A road runs parallel at a distance of 500 m. What is the cyclist's average speed on this road when the observer sees him at 15 s? - Equilateral triangle ABC

In the equilateral triangle ABC, K is the center of the AB side, the L point lies on one-third of the BC side near point C, and point M lies on one-third of the side of the AC side closer to point A. Find what part of the ABC triangle contains the triangl - Garage

There are two laths in the garage opposite one another: one 2 meters long and the second 3 meters long. They fall against each other and stay against the opposite walls of the garage. Both laths cross 70 cm above the garage floor. How wide is the garage? - Euclid theorems

Calculate the sides of a right triangle if leg a = 6 cm and a section of the hypotenuse, which is located adjacent to the second leg b, is 5cm. - Rectangular trapezoid

The ABCD rectangular trapezoid with the AB and CD bases is divided by the diagonal AC into two equilateral rectangular triangles. The length of the diagonal AC is 62cm. Calculate the trapezium area in cm square and calculate how many different perimeters - Similar frustums

The upper and lower radii of a frustum of a right circular cone are 8 cm and 32 cm, respectively. If the altitude of the frustum is 10 cm, how far from the bottom base must a cutting plane be made to form two similar frustums? - Cutting cone

A cone with a base radius of 10 cm and a height of 12 cm is given. At what height above the base should we divide it by a section parallel to the base so that the volumes of the two resulting bodies are the same? Express the result in cm. - Secret treasure

Scouts have a tent in the shape of a regular quadrilateral pyramid with a side of the base of 4 m and a height of 3 m. Find the container's radius r (and height h) so that they can hide the largest possible treasure. - Lighthouse

The man, 180 cm tall, walks along the seafront directly to the lighthouse. The male shadow caused by the beacon light is initially 5.4 meters long. When the man approaches the lighthouse by 90 meters, its shadow is shorter by 3 meters. How tall is the lig - Pyramid cut

We cut the regular square pyramid with a parallel plane to the two parts (see figure). The volume of the smaller pyramid is 20% of the volume of the original one. The bottom of the base of the smaller pyramid has an area of 10 cm². Find the area of the or - Traffic laws

Under traffic regulations, car lights can illuminate the road up to a maximum of 30 m. To check the reach of the dipped-beam lights of their car, Peter stopped the car at 1.5 m from the wall. The dipped beam headlights are 60 cm high. At what height on th - Pentagon

The signboard has the shape of a pentagon ABCDE, in which line BC is perpendicular to line AB, and EA is perpendicular to line AB. Point P is the heel of the vertical starting from point D on line AB. | AP | = | PB |, | BC | = | EA | = 6dm, | PD | = 8.4dm - MO - triangles

On the AB and AC sides of the ABC triangle lies successive points E and F, and on segment EF lie point D. The EF and BC lines are parallel. It is true this ratio FD:DE = AE:EB = 2:1. The area of the ABC triangle is 27 hectares, and line segments EF, AD, a - Cone

The circular cone of height 15 cm and volume 5699 cm³ is at one-third of the height (measured from the bottom) cut by a plane parallel to the base. Calculate the radius and circumference of the circular cut. - Sun rays

If the sun's rays are at an angle of 60°, then the famous Great Pyramid of Egypt (which is now 137.3 meters high) has a 79.3 m long shadow. Calculate the current height of the neighboring Chephren pyramid, whose shadow is measured at the same time at 78.8 - Triangle-shaped 30011

Determine the map's scale if the 1.6 km, 2.4 km, and 2.7 km triangle-shaped forests are drawn on the map as a triangle with sides of 32 mm, 48 mm, and 54 mm. - Diagonals at right angle

In the trapezoid ABCD, this is given: AB=12cm CD=4cm And diagonals crossed under a right angle. What is the area of this trapezoid ABCD? - Equilateral cone

We pour so much water into a container with the shape of an equilateral cone, the base of which has a radius r = 6 cm, that one-third of the volume of the cone is filled. How high will the water reach if we turn the cone upside down?
