1. That's wrong. If you want to convert it into cm, then rather than multiplying it by 100, you must multiply it by (100)3 because it's in 3 dimensions, therefore 100 per side.

You can check this by turning each side into cm FIRST before multiplying them all together. It would be the equivalent of
V=(2x100)x(2x100)x(2x100) where the 2's multiply by eachother 3 times as well as the 100s -> V=1003 x 23

Yepp changed them to CM

You can't convert volumes like that. All because there are 100cm in a meter does not mean that there are 100cm^3 in 1m^3.
Convert the side lengths of the container and work out the volume in cm^3 that way.

6. Since the whole thing is a quarter of a circle with radius 4.8cm, you can work out that area to 3 s.f. Furthermore, you can work out the area of the triangle and take one away from the other to find the area of the segment.

How do I find the area of the triangle? :/

Well the whole thing is a quarter of a circle; the key here is to realise that it means triangle's sides are both the radius of the circle.
9. Pi * 4.8 squared /2
?

So I could do pi *4.8 squared /2?

Not quite; what would that give you?

Area of the... semi circle?

That would be the area of half of the circle you need . But you need to subtract the area of the triangle to get the shaded area of the minor segment.

Yes that would give you the semi-circle area, but you want a quarter of it.

That's not quite right...

I could divide that area in 2 to find a quarter.

Yep. Though you could've skipped this part by simply dividing the circle's area by 4 directly.

19. That's right. Now you can find the segment's area by taking away the triangle's area.

I didn't get this.
