Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Subtract the volume of the cone from the volume of the cube. The volume of a cone formula is (1/3)\[(1/3)\pi r ^{2}h\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(4^{3})((1/3)(3.14)(2^{2})(4))\]=Volume of metal cube after cone is drilled

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 is the length of the cube sides and also the height (4) assuming the cone tip touches the bottom face of the cube. And the circumference of the cone is 4 so the radius is 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@j814wong is correct, you would subtract the volume of the cone from that of the cube. But this belongs in the mathematics group.
