A) 261.8

B) 785.4

C) 916.3

D) 1,047.2

1. Answer :

Circumference = 5π

2πr = 5π

Divide both sides by 2π.

r = 2.5

Volume of the cylinder :

πr2h

Substitute r = 2.5 and h = 4.

= π(2.5)2(4)

= π(6.25)(4)

= 25π cubic units

The correct answer choice is (B).

2. Answer :

The height of the cone is 8.

When the cup is filled with water until its depth reaches half of the height of the cone, the depth of water in the cone :

= (1/2) x height of the cone

= (1/2) x 8

= 4

Let x be the radius of the water level, when the depth of the water is 4.

In the figure above, ΔABC and DEC are similar triangles, hence the sides are proportional.

DE/AB = DC/AC

x/6 = 4/8

x/6 = 1/2

x = 3

The radius of the water level is 3.

Since the water is in the cone shaped cup, formula for volume of a cone can be used to find the volume of the water in the cup.

Volume of the water :

= (1/3)πr2h

Substitute r = 3 and h = 4.

= (1/3)π(3)2(4)

= (1/3)π(9)(4)

= 12π cubic units

The correct answer choice is (A).

3. Answer :

Volume of the box with two square faces :

= base area x height

= (2.5 x 2.5) x 0.5

= 6.25 x 0.5

= 3.125 cm3

To find the volume of the ring, we have to subtract the volume of the metal in the hole from the volume of the box. 

The circular hole at the center of the ring is in the shape of the cylinder.

The hole has a diameter of 2 cm. Then the radius of the hole is 1 cm.

Volume of the metal in the hole can be found using the volume of a cylinder formula, as the hole is in the shape of the cylinder. 

Volume of the metal in the hole :

πr2h

π(1)2(0.5)

= 0.5π

 1.57 cm3

Volume of the metal ring :

= volume of the box - volume of the metal in the hole

= 3.125 - 1.57

= 1.555 cm3

Of the given answer choices, 1.55 is very close to 1.555.

The correct answer choice is (B).

4. Answer :

The base of the wedge above is a sector of a circle.

So, area of the base of the wedge can be found using area of a sector of a circle.

Area of the base  of the wedge :

= (θ/360°) x πr2

Substitute θ = 30° and r = 6.

= (30°/360°) x π(6)2

= (1/12) x π(36)

= 3π cm2

Volume of wedge :

= base area x height

3π x 2

= 6π cm3

The correct answer choice is (B).

5. Answer :

Volume of the box :

= base area x height

= (4 x 6) x 8

= 24 x 8

= 192 in3

Volume of a cube of side length 2 in :

= 2 x 2 x 2

= 8 in3

Number of cubes of side length 2 in are needed to fill the box :

= 192/8

= 24

The correct answer choice is (B).

6. Answer :

After removing squares of side length 2 from the corners, the paper will look like as shown below.

The green colored regions are folded up to create a rectangular box with an open top.

Now, the base of the box is a rectangle with dimensions 4 and 7 and the height of the box is 2.

Volume of the box :

= base area x height

= (4 x 7) x 2

= 28 x 2

= 56 cubic units

Volume of a cube of side length 1 :

= 1 x 1 x 1

= 1 cubic unit

Number of cubes of side length 1 are needed to completely fill the box :

= 56/1

= 56

7. Answer :

The volume of the grain silo can be found by adding the volumes of all the solids of which it is composed. The silo is made up of a cylinder with height 10 ft. and base radius 5 feet and two cones, each having height 5 ft. and base radius 5 ft.

Volume of cylinder :

πr2h

π(5)2(10)

= 250π

Volume of cone :

= (1/3)πr2h

= (1/3)π(5)2(5)

= (125/3)π

Volume of the grain silo :

= volume of the cylinder + 2 x volume of the cone

= 250π + 2(125/3)π

= 250π + (250/3)π

= 1000π/3

≈ 1047.2 ft3

The correct answer choice is (D).
