Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A cone has a diameter of 16 in. and a slant height of 17 in. What is the approximate volume of the cone? Use 3.14 to approximate the value of straight pi. Round your answer to the nearest tenth, if necessary. (Hint: V =1/3 pi r squared h A. 1004.8 in3 B. 1138.8 in3 C. 1259.3 in3 D. 4019.2 in3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1diameter = 16 so what will be radius = r = .. ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't I just have to divide 16 by two? Wouldn't the radius be 8?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yesss r= 8 h =17 you have the formula, just plug the values in!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just a sec, its slant height l = 17 we need to find the value of 'h' using pythagoras theorem first :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm confused. If we're talking about the Pythagoras Theorem, shouldn't I so 17*17 and 8*8? If so, then 17*17=289 and 8*8=64 and then added together it would be 353...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the hypotenuse is 17 :) so 17^2 = 8^2 + h^2 so to get h^2, you'll infact subtract those 2 values, not add them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, so then it would be 28964=225?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats right :) h^2 = 225 so h= .. ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct! h = 15 r = 8 just plug these in the formula given :)
