  6. Length of the edge
    cube_shield Find the length of the edge of a cube that has a cm2 surface and a volume in cm3 expressed by the same number.
  7. Alien ship
    cube_in_sphere The alien ship has the shape of a sphere with a radius of r = 3000m, and its crew needs the ship to carry the collected research material in a cuboid box with a square base. Determine the length of the base and (and height h) so that the box has the large
  8. Divide 8
    powers Divide 6840 by x y and z, in such a way that x has twice as much as y, who has half as much as z
  9. Right circular cone
    cut-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.
