the edge of a cube was found to be 18 inches with a possible measurement error of 0.1 find the max possible error in calculating the surface area of the cube

  • Calculus -

    6 * 18.1^2 = 1965.66
    6 * 18^2 = 1944
    difference = 21.66

    That is the maximum possible error. The likely error is another subject entirely.
