Q:

Bonnie has a container in the shape of a rectangular pyramid. The formula for the surface area of the enclosed space is S = lw + 0.5Ph. Solve for P.P = S – lw – 0.5hP = S + lw + 0.5hP = The quantity S minus l times w all divided by 0.5 times hP = S divided by the quantity l times w plus 0.5 times h

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:Option C. Β P = [tex]\frac{S-lw}{0.5h}[/tex] Step-by-step explanation:Bonnie gas a container in the shape of a rectangular pyramid.Formula for the surface area of the enclosed space is given by S = lw + 0.5 PhWe have to solve this for the value of P.S = lw + 0.5 PhS - lw = (lw + 0.5 Ph) - lw [ By subtracting lw from both the sides of the equation]S - lw = 0.5PhP = [tex]\frac{S-lw}{0.5h}[/tex] [ dividing by 0.5h on both the sides of the equation]Therefore,Option C. P = [tex]\frac{S-lw}{0.5h}[/tex] will be the answer.
