    the volume of a cone is given by \[V = \frac{ 1 }{ 3 }\pi r^2h\]

    r = 30 is given to us but h will need to be calculated using the pythagorean theorem

    maybe you made a mistake in calculating h. using pythagorean theorem... \[50^2 = h^2 + 30^2\] h should then equal \[h = \sqrt{50^2 - 30^2}\]
