Suppose you have a conical shaped tent that you will use for camping. You want to ring along a tarp to fully cover the lateral area in case of inclement weather. The tent is 13 feet across and stands 8 feet high. What is the lateral area that the tarp would cover?

Thank you!

  3. Lateral SA of cone = πrs
    where r is the radius of the base and s is the slant height
    we know r = 6.5 and
    s^2 = 6.5^2 + 8^2
    find s , plug into the formula and you are done
