Math is a big part of being an architectural engineer. The math you
use could be something simple like figuring out the area of a building's floor
or how many lengths of pipe will fit into a certain space. Or it might be
something more complex, like figuring out how many years it will take a floor
to collapse if is rotting at an erratic pace (ideally, you'd just replace
it, of course!).
You're an architectural engineer. You're working
on a condo development in an environmentally sensitive area. It's important
to plan the construction to minimize the effects of soil erosion, which can
make the building process difficult.
To minimize erosion, you know
that it's best to clear a small area of the development at a time. The condo
building site is 300 acres and you want to get the whole project done in a
You decide to work on the same amount of area size every month
to minimize the impact of soil erosion.
What is the size of the area
you'd want to clear and construct in a month?
