The use of a circus tent evokes memories in the spectator of the glory of the circus, which modified now with every comfort and the most up- to- date facilities, lives again in the circus tent of De Boer.

## How do you find the surface area of a circus tent?

Slant height of the cone, l=√r2+h2, where h is the height of the cone. Now, the curved surface area of the tent is equal to the sum of the curved surface area of the cylinder and cone. So, adding equation (i) and (ii), we get the curved surface area of tent =(1980+12870)m2=14850m2.

## What is the large circus tent normally called?

## How do you calculate the area of a canvas?

The amount of canvas required to make a cone would be equal to the curved surface area of the cone. It is given that the vertical height ‘h’ = 24 m and base radius ‘r’ = 7 m. Hence the slant height of the given cone is 25 m. Therefore the Curved Surface Area of the cone is 550 m^{2}.

## How do you measure the height of a tent?

By drawing in the height of the front of the tent, we get two right triangles, so we can use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine the slant height: √(6^{2} + (5/2)^{2}) = √(36 + (25/4)) = 13/2 feet. This tells us that each slanted side of the tent has an area of 7 × (13/2) = 91/2 square feet.

## Is the circus dead?
