If a shape is two dimensional it has NO volume - volume is an attribute of THREE dimensional shapes.

If you meant the AREA of an irregular two dimensional shape, then divided it up into areas which are not irregular and so you can calculates them, and sum the areas of these non-irregular shapes.

If you meant the volume of an irregular THREE dimensional shape, then a similar process can be followed by dividing it up into three dimensional shapes you can can calculate the volume of and summing them, though if it is an irregular object that you are physically holding, then you can find its volume by finding the increase in volume of a liquid (In a regular container) when the object is submerged into that liquid.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the volume of a circle if its radius equals 4?

There is no volume in a circle but volume can be found in a sphere. The question should be rephrased. A circle is a two dimensional shape, so it cannot have a volume which is a characteristic of a three dimensional shape.


What is the Volume formulae of a semi-circle?

semicircle is a two-dimensional shape, hence it has an area but does not have a volume.


How is the volume of a rectangle measured?

Simple. The volume of a rectangle is 0. A rectangle is a two dimensional shape and therefore cannot have a volume.


What is the formula for finding the volume of a triangle?

There is none because a triangle is a 2D shape -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There is not one. Triangles are two dimensional, volume is three dimensional, a triangle can therefore have an area but not a volume.


What is the formula to get the volume of a triangle?

There is none because a triangle is a 2D shape and volume measures 3D shapes ----------------------------------------------------------------- There is not one. Triangles are two dimensional, volume is three dimensional, a triangle can therefore have an area but not a volume.


What is the definition of an irregular volume?

An irregular volume is one that has no simple equation to describe it's shape. An example would be a cylinder with a cone on it's end. The shape can often be divided into two or more regular shapes which have known equations that describe them. In this case, a cylinder and a cone. To then find the total volume of the irregular shape, you sum the volumes of the individual regular shape volumes.


What is used too measure the volume of an solid with an irregular shape?

The volume of an irregular shape can be found by measuring the amount of displaced water when the object is placed in a measuring jar. In a measuring jar the difference between the two levels give the volume of displacement.

How many cubic feet are in a 10' circle?

A circle is a two dimensional shape; it's width in the third dimension can be considered as either 0 or infinite; so its volume in cubic feet is either 0 or infinite.Or to put it another way:cubic feet are a measure of volume which is a property of three dimensional objects.A circle is a two dimensional shape; it has no volume property. To ask what its volume is is nonsense.
