nop you used 50 in calculations.. as its not the height in this case.. can u see the diagram i drew?

yes but now i'm confused on what to do . can you type the equation for me and i will solve ?

nubeer Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well u first have to find the h.. h is the perpendicular height and its not given.. formula for cone is this. volume = 1/3* pi *r^2*h

maybe you can do your steps here so i can point your mistake.

i did : 1/3 * pi * 30^2 * 50

ok.. half is right .. the place where u had put 50 that is wrong. its not 50

do u see the "h" with the dotted line?

nubeer Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok find the value of "h" by Pythagoras theorem.

so 50^2 + 30 ^2 = c^2 ?
 2 years ago

nubeer Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
not exactly.. the slanting height is "c" the base is "a" and height is "b"..

nubeer Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so c^2=a^2+b^2 c=50, a= 30 , b= h can you find h now?

nubeer Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
nooo.. 50^2  30^2 = h^2

1600^2
 2 years ago

nubeer Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes h^2 = 1600.. now take square root to find h.
 2 years ago

nubeer Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
good.. this is your h now.. volume = 1/3* pi *r^2*h h=40, r =30 now plug it in formula.
