Page 602 - V9 x 25 sq. ft. = 15 sq. ft. NOTE. — The mean proportional between two numbers is equal to the square root of their product. 13. Find the volume of the frustum of a square pyramid, its upper base containing 64 square inches, and its lower base 196 square inches, its altitude being 18 inches. 1294. Note that the mean proportional between 64 and 196 is 8 x 14, or 112. Since each is multiplied by one-third of the altitude, the operation is shortened by adding together the three areas, 64, 196, and...

Page 593 - Prisms may be either right or oblique. The convex surface of a right prism consists of rectangles. Fig. 1 is a right prism; Fig. 2 is an oblique prism. NOTE. — When a prism is spoken of, a right prism is meant unless the word oblique is used. The altitude of a prism is the perpendicular distance between the bases. AD, BF, or CE is the altitude in Fig.
