Homework Statement


I have a couple of matlab questions hopefully you guys can help me out

40).The volume of a right prism is base area * vertical_dimension. Find the volumes of the prisms with triangles of problem 29 as their bases, for vertical dimensions of 10.

I don't understand which part of 29 they want me to incorporate. Question 29 reads the area of a triangle s 1/2 base* height define the base of the matrix as b=[2,3,6]

Would I use the area of question 29 as the base area in question 40?


Create a B matrix by extracting the first column of matrix A

I'm trying B= A(1,:)

Thanks for the help guys.

And it doesnt seem to be working..

That would be my reading. #29 has a bunch of triangles which are to be used as basis for right-prisms. Probably you should implement the method from #29 for finding the area or a triangle.

I'm trying B= A(1,:) ... And it doesn't seem to be working..
In what way?
What does it do instead of what you want?
(Once you have described the problem, the solution should leap out at you.)
