MAFS.912.G-MG.1.3 - Apply geometric methods to solve design problems.

1. The benchmark will be assessed using Equation Response, Graphic Response, Movable Text Response, Open Response, or Selectable Text Response.

2. Items may require students to interpret the results of a solution within the context of the modeling situation.

3. Items may require students to create an equation, express a numerical value, explain model, or give a description of a model.



Example One

Example Two

A package shaped like a rectangular prism needs to be mailed.  For this package to be mailed at the standard parcel-post rate, the sum of the length of the longest side and the girth (the perimeter around its other two dimensions) must be less than or equal to 108 inches (in.).  Figure 1 shows how to measure the girth of a package.



What is the sum of the length, in inches, of the longest side and the girth of the package shown in Figure 2?
