The exercise asks for the value of x, but then you say that the exercise has given you two values for x: x = 2 and x = 1. Also, h = l = w = h. This does not make sense.havin trouble with this problem... the volume of the larger rectangular box is three times the volume of the smaller rectangular box what is the value of x?
the sides of the large box are as follows l= x=2, w= x=1 h=x all three sides of the small box are x how would i go about solving this? thank you
I'll guess that "X" is meant to be the same as "x". (This is usually not true in math, so please say if I'm wrong!)sorry l=x+1 w=x h=X+2
Where is the 3x coming from? What does the sum in your second equation relate to? (It's not volume.) What is your simplified expression for the larger volume? What is your simplified expression for the smaller volume? What is your equation that relates the two volume expressions? Thanks!so i get
so 3x= x^2+2x^2+2x and im stuck
I did give you a run-down: They gave you expressions for L, w, and h of the big box in terms of x. Plug these into the formula for the volume V of a box with length L, width w, and height h. This gives you an expression for the big volume in terms of x. What expression do you get? They also gave you expressions (all the same one-variable expression) for L, w, and h of the small box in terms of x. What expression do you get? They also gave you a relationship: "(the big volume) is (three times of)(the small volume)". Plug your expressions into the equation, and solve.I dont fully understand would you mind giving me a run down on how to do this type of problem i have to do a bunch of them and am compleatly lost
