    Volume = pi * radius^2 * height Derive wrt time: dV/dt = pi * 2r * dr/dt * h + pi * r^2 * dh/dt Now for the first part: dV/dt = pi * 2 * 8 * 2 * 12 + pi * 8^2 * -3 Second part: Increasing.

    Why does it come out a negative number?

    The answer is 192pi. You must literally just do the calculation of what I wrote down, which gives 192pi.
