3 NAME q1 A snowman is made up of three spheres stacked on top of each other. A large sphere is used for the base, a medium sized sphere for the body and a small sphere for the head. The medium sized sphere is 2/3 of the height of the large sphere, and only 15cm higher than the small sphere. The small sphere is 30cm high. a) What is the height of the large sphere? b) What is the total height of the snowman in metres? q2 If 3 boys can build 4 snowmen in 24 minutes, how many snowman will 9 boys finish building in an hour? q3 A 85cm tall snowman begins to melt when the sun is shining directly on him.
