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

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?

Alr.

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.

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 :)

You're welcome.

And if you need my help again, @ me.
