Question:

I humbly request the wisdom ofReplies:Andrej BauerI am a math student and would like to see if you can

actually practice what you preach. So solve this question.

Let P be a pyramid with square base of side 2b and suppose

that S is a sphere with its center on the base of P and is

tangent to all eight edges of P. Find the height of P. Then

find the volume and the intersection of S and P.

Your problem is easy. The height of the pyramid is that number which multiplied by itself gives twice as much as when`b`

is multiplied by itself.

I think Barbie is saying we have got half an octahedron here.

An octahedron with a ball stuck up its ass, give me a GIF, baby!

Here you go, Corey:

Wohoo! I love you, Anti Andrej. It's a big, big, ball.

If force you use, clearly volume of intersection will you see.
