    Volume of a cylinder = Area of the Base x the Length

    Volume of a cone = 1/3 x Area of the Base x height

    height = length so if u make the Bases the same area, then Volume of a Cone = 1/3 Volume of the Cylinder

    so seeing as you Cylinder has a volume of 24... what do you think the answer is for Volume of the Cone @nessababy12 ?

    Cylinder volume = PI * height * radius^2 24 = PI*4*1.382*1.382 Cone Volume = (PI * height * radius^2) / 3 I was just wondering IF cylinder volume were the same with DIFFERENT height and radius if cone volume would be different but according to the formulas, cone volume is always one third cylinder volume.

    q doesnt really say Max Volume either... just must fit "exactly inside"... something of smaller that 1/3 volume fits exactly inside, or if u put one in sideways, etc ;)

    So, with height = 4 and r = 1.382 volume = 24 (for cylinder) and 8 (for cone) with height = 6 and r = 1.1284 volume = 24 (for cylinder) and 8 (for cone) So, everything is juat the way you folks figured.
