Yes, they have the same volume. Because the volume of a rectangular prism is the product of its dimensions and by the Commutative Property of Multiplication, the order in which we multiply the numbers does not affect the product.

The distribution of height for a certain population of women is approximately normal with mean 65 inches and standard deviation 3.5 inches. Consider two different random samples taken from the population, one of size 5 and one of size 85.
Which of the following is true about the sampling distributions of the sample mean for the two sample sizes?
Both distributions are approximately normal with mean 65 and standard deviation 3.5.
A
Both distributions are approximately normal. The mean and standard deviation for size 5 are both less than the mean and standard deviation for size 85.
B
Both distributions are approximately normal with the same mean. The standard deviation for size 5 is greater than that for size 85.
C
Only the distribution for size 85 is approximately normal. Both distributions have mean 65 and standard deviation 3.5.
D
Only the distribution for size 85 is approximately normal. The mean and standard deviation for size 5 are both less than the mean and standard deviation for size 85.

Anthony is working for an engineering company that is building a Ferris wheel to be used at county fairs. He wants to create an algebraic model that describes the height of a rider on the wheel in terms of time. He knows that the diameter of the wheel will be 90 feet and that the axle will be built to stand 55 feet off the ground. He also knows they plan to set the wheel to make one rotation every 60 seconds. Write at least two equations that model the height of a rider in terms of t, seconds on the ride, assuming that when t = 0, the rider is at his or her lowest possible height. Explain why both equations are accurate.
Part 2:One of Anthony's co-workers says, "Sine and cosine are basically the same thing." Anthony is not so sure, and can see things either way. Provide one piece of evidence that would confirm the co-worker's point of view. Provide one piece of evidence that would refute it. Hint: It may be helpful to consider the domain and range of different functions, as well as the relationship of each of these functions to triangles in the unit circle
