koi pdf send kar do....

And that's the bottom line cause i said so :)

@[404858:DemonDev] You can also do question 1 by good old brute force: figuring out what the surface area for an individual piece will be (out of the 8 pieces created).


A bit of 3-D visualization will do it, try making a diagram. Each piece comprises of 3 circular sectors (with area of each sector = 1/4th of pie x r^2 ), and an outer curved area that will be 1/8th of the outer surface area of the original uncut sphere ( = 1/8 x 4 x pie x r^2).

Sum it all up to get the surface area of a single piece as 3 x (1/4 x pie x r^2) + 1/2 x pie x r^2 = 5/4 x pie x r^2

Finding the price of painting should be straightforward now, and is given by:

5/4 x pie x r^2 (1+2+3...+7) = 11000

@[375731:ayush3390] Even I got screwed in that question. The difference is in the details: the skeptics and the author don't say that the photographer introduced props of his own (such as an extra dead body mooched from a nearby morgue ). The cannon balls were already there, the photographer just rearranged them for artistic purposes.
