Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All 'lengths' (i.e. height, radii) have the same ratio, let's call it k. All 'areas' have the ratio k^2. The volume has the ratio k^3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.015/10 = 3/2 or 3:2 ratio. Let this be 'k', and the results follow from above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You don't need to find the radii, only their ratio. As they are similar, the ratio of the radii is equal to the ratio of the heights.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You CANNOT find them explicitly. The description of 'height 10' could be any cone with any radius.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how do i find the s.a and volume

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The ratio of the SA = (3/2)^2 = 9/4 The ratio of the Volume = (3/2)^2 = 27/8 You CANNOT find the exact SA/volume.
