A water ride at a local water park has a ride shaped like a cone that acts like a funnel whereby guests swirl around the cone until they drop through its center. There is one ride for adults and a similar, smaller version for children. If the adult ride has a radius of 33 feet and the child ride has a radius of 22 feet, what is the ratio between the volumes of each ride? Answer 27:8 9:6 9:4 3:2

    Are we to assume they have the same height, or does height make a difference to the volume? V=(pi r^2 h)/3

    This can't be a true cone since the riders come out the bottom. It is a frustum....what is the lower radius, and is volume really a real meaning, as it can't contain anything?

    I'm stumped, seems like more info is needed.
