  6. House roof
    roof_pyramid_2 The roof of the house has the shape of a regular quadrangular pyramid with a base edge 17 m. How many m2 is needed to cover roof if roof pitch is 57° and we calculate 11% of waste, connections and overlapping of area roof?
  7. Tower
    HexagonalPyramid_4 The top of the tower is a regular hexagonal pyramid with base edge 8 meters long and a height 5 meters. How many m2 of the sheet is required to cover the top of the tower if we count 8% of the sheet waste?
  8. Slope of the pool
    swimming_pool Calculate slope (rise:run) of the bottom of swimming pool long 30 m. Water depth at beginning of pool is 1.13 m (for children) and depth at end is 1.84 m (for swimmers). Slope express as percentage and as angle in degrees.
  9. Cuboid diagonal
    cube_2 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.
  10. See harmonics
    HarmonicMean It is true that the size of the central segment of any trapezoid is the harmonic mean size of its bases? Prove it. Central segment crosses the intersection of the diagonals and is parallel to the bases.
  11. Shooter
    terc_1 The shooter fired to a target from distance 11 m The individual concentric circle of targets have a radius increments 1 cm (25 points) by 1 point. Shot was shifted by 8'(angle degree minutes). How many points should win his shot?
  12. OPT
    right_triangle_pythagoras What is the perimeter of a right triangle with the legs 14 cm and 21 cm long?
  13. Triangle radians
    triangle-base The size of two internal angles of a triangle ABC are α=6/18π and β=7/18π. Calculate the size of the third angle.
  14. Train
    sncf The train is running at speeds of 96 km/h. From the beginning of braking to full stop train run for 3.3 minutes. If the train slows the braking equally, calculate the distance of the place from the station where you need to start to brake.
  15. Horizon
    lighthouse 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.]
  16. Elevation
    horizon_diagram 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.
  17. Center of the cube
    center_of_cube Center of the cube has distance 16 cm from each vertex. Calculate the volume V and surface area S of the cube.
