Cycloid Geometry

The circle has a radius of 8. As the circle rolls along the line, the point P (a pencil point) draws a curve. a) Draw the curve for three complete revolutions of the circle. b) Find the area between the curve (one loop) and the line. c) Find the length of the curve - all three loops.

Volume of Cone from Circle with Missing Sector

A circle has a radius of 5. A sector of that circle has a central angle of 120 degrees. This sector is cut out and the two radii folded together thus forming a cone. Find the volume of that cone.

Volume of Box Containing Spheres

240 spheres, each of radius 2, are placed in a box in 5 layers. There are 6 rows with 8 spheres in each row at each layer. The outside spheres are each tangent to the box and the spheres are tangent to those spheres next to them. Find the volume of the box which is between the spheres.

Area Bounded by Chord and Arc

In a circle, the arc of a chord is 2 pie square root 2. The radius of that circle is 3 square root 2. Find the area bounded by that chord and that arc.

A hollow steel shaft 12 feet long has an outside diameter of 16in. the inside diameter is 9 inches. What is the weight of this shaft if the steel weighs 0.29 lbs per cubic inch?

What is the base of the rectangle?

A rectangle and a triangle are equal in area and also equal in height. If the base of the triangle is 40, what is the base of the rectangle?

Finite Axiomatic Geometry

Consider the following axiom system. The undefined terms are point, line, and on. Axioms: I. Given any two distinct points, there exactly one line on both of them. II. Given any line, there is at least one point not on it. III. Given any line, there are at least five points on it. IV. There is at least one line. Questio

Hits on a rectangular board

On a 12 by 20 rectangular board, three plane figures are drawn: a square 6 on a side , a circle with radius 4 and an equilateral triangle that is 8 on a side. If a dart is thrown that does hit the large rectangle what is theprobability that it hits inside one of the three plane figures? (Landing on the side of a figure counts
