Math problem for Day 7 on D.Buzz for April 2021 😎

Holovision must store "The Source" - which can potentially provide limitless energy - into a tesseract whose enclosed hyperspace is 8 meters⁴. What is the surface area of the tesseract that can contain The Source?

My answer is "No Solution".

I have no way of even knowing how to solve this problem and the sci-fi just throws me off. A Tesseract, hyperspace and etc? Whatever I go with the simplest thing that comes to my mind.

I'm sorry that the problem is not interesting for you. 😰 From my perspective, it is still in geometry that may be asked in high school math contests. 😐

A = 24 a^2, where edge length a = fourth-root of the volume = 8 ^(1/4) = 1.682 => The surface area is 67.882.

Ok wild ass guess. If I want to find the edge length of a square I would square, a cube I would cube, so let's assume this holds and we can ^(1/4) . The edge length of the terrsecat is (8)^(1/4) or 1.68. The surface area in real space is 6x1.68x1.68 = 16.97 in real space.

you're close! only the number of faces has to be scaled up: while it's 6 faces in 3D, it has 24 faces in 4D. Pretty hard to image...

Damn and i was thinking it was time for the last d
