What an excellent library of exercises! Thanks for sharing it!


20.- Minimun surface.

An open-topped cylindrical container has a volume of V = 3140 cm3. Find the cylinder dimensions (radius of base r, height v) so that the least material is needed to form the container.

  • Build an application using the expressions above.
  • And with two sliders that move them calculate the surface keeping the volume constant. Check the minimum surface, in this case 942.16

On this website you can find many mathematical problems:


21.- Maximun angle.

The Statue of Liberty measures 46 m, is 47 m above ground level, look image.

What distance should one stand away from the statue in order to maximize the view of the statue? That is, what is the maximum angle Θ.


22.- Law of cosines.

In a right triangle we can calculate the c side using the Pythagorean theorem.
If the triangle is not a rectangle, we can calculate the c side using the Law of Cosines.

Build an application where you can change sides a and b and the alpha angle using Sliders and get side c. Draw the triangle.

hello, great demonstration !!!
if I take your first example on calculating the area of a polygon, is it possible to color it?
what is the method (I am not as efficient as you in this field, I would even say beginner :-))
Thanks for reading

perhaps see here:

Flood fill an image, extension.

A post worth bookmarking, not just for App Inventor but also if you need help with Maths :upside_down_face: :sweat_smile:

27.- Find the crossing point of two lines perpendicular to two sides of an equilateral triangle.

apk file in external link:

We have an equilateral triangle whose sides are 100.
On the left side we draw a segment of 65 and on the right side another of 47.
Find the equation of the line that passes through these points and is perpendicular to the sides.
Find the point where these lines intersect.


This triangle is used in various problem domains, from describing earth samples based on their proportions of sand, clay, and silt (a recent question on this forum) to choosing newly created character attribute values in the game Fallout 4 (according to my son (I haven't reached that game yet.))

The equilateral triangle has the interesting property that any point within the triangle's closest distances to the the three sides always add up to the same number, the height of the triangle.

Unfortunately, no source code is here, so we have to derive the equations from scratch.
