Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the important idea is that the cone has the same radius and same height as the cylinder the volume of a cone is \[ V_{cone}= \frac{1}{3} \pi r^2 h \] the volume of the cylinder is \[ V_{cylinder}= \pi r^2 h \] if r and h are the same in both equations, then the cone is 1/3 the volume of the cylinder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or, in other words, the cylinder is 3 times bigger volume than the cone. if the cone is 20, what is 3 times bigger than that ?
