A rectangle has a perimeter of 36. Both the length and the width are whole numbers. If the rectangle has the least possible area, what are its dimensions?
a.
1 by 17
c.
2 by 4
b.
1 by 35
d.
6 by 6

The formula for the perimeter of a rectangle is P = 2L+2W. You are already given the perimeter so all you have to do is plug in what pair will equal to 36. From the given choices, 1 by 17 will give 36. P = 2(1) + 2(17) so P = 2 + 34 = 36

Find the volume of a cone with a radius of 6 m and a height of 10 m.
40p m3
120p m3
240p m3
720p m3

Weegy: A cone having radius of 6 m and height 10 m. [ Calculate its curved surface area and total surface area.
Solution:
Given: Radius of cone r = 6 m, Height of cone h = 10 m
The curved surface area of the cone is given by
CSA = $\pi$ rl = $\pi$ $\times$ 6 $\times$ 10 = 188.495 m.
The total surface area of the cone is given by A = $\pi$ (s + r)
The slant height is s = $\sqrt{r^2 + h^2}$ = $\sqrt{6^2 + 10^2}$ = 11.66 m
$\therefore$ ... (More)
