There is a cone inside a cube. The diameter of the cone is 4 cm. The length,height,and width of the cube are 6 cm each. What is the volume of the cube not occupied by the cone? ( Use three for pi )

    Vcone = 1/3 * pi*r^2*t Vcube = side*side*side

    so 36*6-1/3*3*4^2

    the only thing given is the diameter of the base. the cone is upside down inside the cube

    magbe. and so, what would the equation be?

    Vcone = 1/3 * pi*(2)^2*4 = 16pi/3 Vcube = 4*4*4 = 64 subtracted from Vcube, gives 64-16pi/3

    but if asked for a specific one,would 48 suffice?

    just convert pi=3.14

    they tell u to use 3 for pi

    it will easier, so funy... = 64 - 16*3/3 = 64 - 16 = 48 u r right :)
