ANSWER KEY: SOLUTIONS to Spatial Sense and Geometry HSPA PREP examples.
1. First you should sketch the parts of a can the way they would look if you could lay them flat. A can (really a cylinder) is made of two circles and a rectangle.
Arearectangle = l w = (circumference)(height)=(d)(h) = [(3.14)(6)](8) =150.72 sq. in.
(Notice that the circumference of the circle is really the same as the length of the rectangle.)
Areacircle = r2 = (3.14) (?)2 I don’t know the radius; but, I do not the diameter is 6, therefore the radius is 3.
Areacircle = r2 = (3.14) (3)2 = (3.14)(9) = 28.26 sq. inches (area of one circle)
The total area of the can is the area of the rectangle + the area of two circles.
150.72 + 2(28.26) = 207.24 or approximately ~ 207 in.2
2a. lateral surface area = 160sq.units (12x4)(2)+(12x2)(2) = (2x4)(2) = 160
2b. volume = 96 cubic units (12)(4)(2) = 96
2c. Answers will vary but they show 3 sides whose product is 96.
Volumes: (3)(4)(8)=96 (4)(4)(6)=96 (2)(2)(24)=96 (1)(2)(48)=96
Surf.areas: 62 112 56 290
3. B3 (3)(2)(6) = 36; (4)(3)(?)=36 (12)(?)=36 (12)(3)=36
4. B4 (side)3=64, side=4 (the length of one edge)
5. C9 Volume=27, (side)3=27, side=3 Area of one face = (side)2=32=9
6. B 8 Volume = (side)3=8, side=2; Perimeter of one face = 4(2) = 8
7. D 125 Perimeter=20, Perimeter=4(side); one side=20/4=5 Volume=(side)3= 53=125.
8. C ~75 Area large circle = r2 = (3.14)(72) = (3.14)(49) = 153.86
Area small circle = r2 = (3.14)(52) = (3.14)(25) = 78.50
Area larger circle less area small circle = area shaded region = 75.36
9. ~20.96 SQ. cm. area sq.=(12)(12)=144; area circle=(3.14)(6)2=113.04
area shaded region = square-circle = 144 – 113.04 = 20.96
10. D 20-21 Area circle = r2 = (3.14)(4.25)2 = (3.14)(18.06) = 56.7
Area square = (6)(6) = 36; area shaded region = 56.7 less 36 = 20.7 or between 20-21
11. 20= area shaded region
rectangle=(5)(8)=40 – area triangle = ½ ((5)(8)=20; area shade region = 40-20 =20
12. B They are the same.
Volume cone = 1/3(area base)(height); Volume cylinder=(area base)(height)
Volume cone = 1/3(r2)h Volume of cylinder = (r2)h
Volume this cone = 1/3(3.14)(9)2(30) Volume this cylinder = (3.14)(9)2(10)
Volume this cone = (3.14)(9)2(10) Volume this cylinder = (3.14)( 9)2(10)
13. A 497 is the approximate area of the grass part of the park.
area rectangle=(30)(20) = 600; area path = (3)(30) = 90; area circle = (3.14)(2)(2) =12.56
area shaded region = 600 less 90, less 12.56 = 497.44 sq.
14. Area of circle would be greater than area of square using 100 ft. of fencing.
Use the circumference of the circle to find the radius of the circle, then find area.
Circumference = 100 =d; 100 = (3.14)(d); 31.847 = d; 15.9235 = r
Area of circle =r2; (3.14)(15.9235)2 is approximately 796 sq. feet
Use the perimeter of the square to find the side, then find area.
Perimeter = 100 = 4(side), so side = 25 feet
Area of square = (side)2; (25)2 = 625 sq. feet
15. B 2,376sq.ft.
shorter side=50 - (3+3) = 44; longer side = 60 - (3+3) = 54; area = (44)(54) = 2,376
16. The rectangle does not have an area of 36 sq. units
Area right triangle = ½(9)(8) = ½(72) = 36;
Area square = (6)(6) = 36
Area rectangle = (18)(3) = 54
Area acute triangle = ½(2)(36) = 36
17. B 10.5 Perimeter of an equilateral triangle = 3(side) = 3(3.5) = 10.5
18. A 48 sq.cm.
Find height: a2 + b2 = c2; 82 + b2 =102; 64 + b2=100; b(the height)=6; (or
just recognize that it is a 3,4,5 right triangle with each dimension doubled)
Area of triangle = sq. centimeters
19. D The square Area square = s2= (25)(25)=625
Area triangle==100 Area trapezoid=
20. Perimeter = 7+3+5+12+15+2+17+17=78 yards; Area = 73+122+172=79 square yards
21. A(1,1) becomes (1,-3); B(2,3) becomes (2,-1); C(6,2) becomes C(6, -2)
22. D quadrant IV
23. Sketches will vary. Reflected triangle should be flipped left-right and located in quadrant I
24. C Dilation; only the size changed.
25. D Sphere
26. D Dilated shapes are in the same proportion as the original shape; they are similar.
In this case the smaller shape is 1/3 the size of the original shape.
Let be the height of the dilated right triangle.

Practice with OTHER POLYGONS
42. C All s of a rhombus are NOT =, only opposite s are =.
43. B False; opposite sides of a trapezoid are not always equal.
44. A 720 o is the sum of the interior angles of a hexagon. A hexagon is a 6 sided polygon. Formula to find degrees in exterior angle = (number of sides -2) (180o). Therefore (6-2)(180) = (4)(180) = 720
Draw a hexagon (a 6-sided polygon) and count how many triangles you can draw from one vertex. Count the number of triangles and multiply by 180.
45. B The sum of the exterior angles of any polygon is 360o.
46. Michelle is correct. An obtuse angle is one that measures >90 o.
The sum of 2 angles >90 will be > 180. Since 3 angles in a triangle must add to 180o, you cannot have 2 angles that exceed 180 o.
47. Let x = distance from A to D. Tan 60 o = , so x = 577.35 feet.
Let y = distance from D to B. Tan 20 o = , so y = 2,747.48 feet.
Therefore x + y = 577.35 + 2,747.48 = 3,325 feet.
(A and B are 3,325 feet apart.)
feet (distance from A to C)

48. D 100 sq. units Notice that each triangle is a 6, 8, 10 right triangle. Therefore, the each side of the smaller square is 10 units long. Area of a rectangle is l w = (10)(10)=100
OR Large rectangle is a square with side length 14. Area of square is 142 = 196
