Prove that the magnitude of the volume of the first prism is double the area of the lateral surface of the other prism.**19.** The height of a right prism is 15 cm. and its base is a regular octagon whose each side is 10 cm. Show that the volume of the prism is nearly 7242 c.c.**20.** The whole surface of a right prism 15 cm. high is 675√3 sq. cm. if the base is a regular hexagon, then find the length of each side of the base and the volume of the prism.**21.** The base of a right prism is a regular pentagon of side x. If the area of its lateral surface and volume be s and v respectively, show that:

x = (4v/s) tan 36°

**22.** The base of a right prism is a regular octagon. If its height, lateral surface and volume be h, S and v respectively, prove that,

S² = 32 vh tan (π/8).

**23.** The height of a right prism is 15 cm. and its volume is 750(√2 - 1) C.C. If the base be a regular octagon, find the length of each side of the base.
