I answer B because aside from St2, the question and St1 dont indicate whether is a rectangle prism pool or a cylinder pool. As far as I know I cannot use information from St2 (cylinder pool) to answer the question with St1.
On the other hand, Bunnuels revised version is better since the question itself is saying that the pool is right circular cylinder. IMO, this is a poor constructed question.
What am I missing here?
Hi marcovg4, Pay attention to the fact that we have been given volume in the Question stem.
Volume by its basic definition is equal to the area of the surface * Height
In the first statment we have not been told that its a rectangular prism or cylinder pool, But does it matter?
If its rectangular den it would be (l*b) * h = 56
Therefore, the surface area = (pie * r *r) *h = 56
However, yeah the values probably do not agree with each other as the answer from 1st statement looks like an approximate from 2nd statement.
So yeah, that is poorly constructed, However i still do not see why the shape should be an issue here since the question already says that is has vertical walls and a flat bottom.
PS: Like my approach? Please Help me with some Kudos.
