That's a coffin. I've always heard it as "the man who built me doesn't want me."
Isn't there a band with a one-armed drummer? A really famous band? Like a spotted animal that's hard of hearing?
You hold a gymnastics competition with four competitors competing in three events.
Your events are the beam, the vault, and the floor exercise.
Determine where each competitor placed in each competition using these clues:
and that's the hard way - I did it that way too.
So - Since the final answer didn't have radius in it, just 'h', that means you can pick a cylinder of any radius you like - as long as h=6
I'd try the cylinder where radius approaches zero.......
that means the bead's diameter approaches h
that means the cylinder and cap volumes approach zero
So you are left with the volume of a sphere -
V = 4/3 pi r^3: where r = h/2 = 3
V = 36 pi
proof your answer is correct......
another - I have a number in mind. It's either 1, 2, or 3. Guess my number - you can ask me one question and I'll answer it 'yes', 'no', or "I don't know"
(goal - find a question that gives you the right answer no matter which number I chose)
Wouldn't be fair for me to answer this one ... seeing as how the ONLY reason I know the answer is because I saw this question the other day at the same place I found the water lily question. ;)
