    Take info from one triangle to find info from another h/16=3/12 solve for h of small cone.

    Just follow exactly as you did the big cone. You have to keep track of the methods and techniques.

    Why are you dividing? I thought you just wanted vol of big cone, vol of small cone.

    Or do you mean the final answer of each happens to be a fraction? If that is what you mean it is OK it starts with a fraction 1/3; not everything ends in whole numbers.
