11. A solid metal prism has a rectangular base with sides of 4 inches and 6 inches, and a height of 4 inches. A hole in the shape of a cylinder, with a radius of 1 inch, is drilled through the entire length of the rectangular prism.
The Volume of the prism is 4 x 4 x 6 or 96 cubic inches. The Volume lost by drilling the cylinder is (1)2(pi)(6), which is approximately 18.85. Subtract 96 - 19 = 77.
12. Given the right triangle in the diagram below, what is the value of x, to the nearest foot?
