First of all you know that the formula for calculating the volume of a cylinder is: V=pi*r(square)*height

OK, you have the radius and height for the small pipe and the height for the large pipe but you don't have the radius you need in order to calculate the volume, understood till here now?

u have to make a ratio, right?

Yes like this: Height in the small pipe / Height in the large pipe = Radius in the small pipe / Radius in the large pipe

Height in the small pipe = 48 cm Height in the large pipe= 60 cm Radius in the small pipe = 16 cm Radius in the large pipe= xcm Understood till here now?

Now solve for x which will give you the radius of the large pipe

Look, 16/x = 48/60 16*60*48*x 960=48x x=960/48 x=20
