A wooden block in the shape of a rectangular pyramid is shown below: A shaded right rectangular pyramid is shown. If a cross section of the block is cut in a plane parallel to the base of the pyramid, which of the following shapes describes the cross section? Triangle Rectangle Trapezoid Hexagon
Um, ok, but how?
you see i just reshched it
But i don't understand how it's a hexagon.
No direct answers, please. Also, let me solve this. Thanks.
Rx1nyDxyz, can you screenshot the rectangular pyramid and post it here?
Thank you. Now give me a moment...
So it's being cut in a plane parallel to the base of the pyramid. So then it would be cut like: |dw:1619126806802:dw| ;/ I tried. But it's not a Triangle or a Hexagon. If it was a Rectangle after cutting, it would be like... Eliminate Triangle and Hexagon. ______ | | ______ Not... ____ / \ ====== Which (above figure) one of your options looks like my above figure? Rectangle or... Trapezoid
Ignore my bad drawing btw ;/
Your drawing looks good! And, i might be wrong, but to me it looks like a Trapezoid.
You are correct. It would be a Trapezoid after the Pyramid gets cut.
Ah, thank you so much! This was confusing :)
And if you need my help again, @ me.
