Apply Area and Pythagorean Theorem to a prism

  1. Jul 28, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    Formula for Area of a retangle : A = L x W
    Pythagorean theorem: A2 + b2 = c2

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So I am pretty sure I did it correct but I just want to be 100% certain I will get this right, By the way its a picture cause I found it easier to just snip it then copy paste.

    Thank you in advance for your help

    Looks ok, as long as we disregard the fact that an area isn't measured in cubic feet and the "entire roof" is not 240 sqft. Calculation A, text D . :biggrin:

    He will not need approximately 15; he will need to buy exactly 15. It would not be possible to buy 0.54 of a bundle.
