Week 5 AMC10 Prep Course Homework
That is the question, I just need to know what it means by the edge of the cube is half contained in the sphere. Does it mean it is like inscribed or the sphere is bigger than it is? If you can, put a picture. That would help me a lot, thanks!
I also need a bit of help understanding this problem. Is the problem saying that the corners of the cube touch the sphere?
Now you ask your dad (or mom) to make some corners for you, that fit perfectly onto your sphere.
You glue them onto the sphere, so then it looks like a Pac-Man came alive and was tired of eating hosts, so he decided to devour about half of a cube.
(Make sure that there is a bump on every "face" of the "cube" you just made, and the cross sections look like a circle with edges sticking out at 90 degree angles)
That's what this problem is describing.
