Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all you need to to is find the both of the cylinder volumes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then divide the first cylinder by the second one, that will give you a number, you then turn that number into a percentage.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Cylinder B is 50% smaller than cylinder A. Cylinder B is 75% bigger than cylinder A. Cylinder B is 150% smaller than cylinder A. Cylinder B is 100% bigger than cylinder A.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since you were given the volume of cylinder B in terms of pi, calculate the volume of cylinder A also in terms of pi.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\Large V_B = 490 \pi~in.^3\) \(\Large V_A = \pi r^2 h = \pi (7~in.)^2(5 ~in.) = 245 \pi ~in.^3\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since both volumes are shown in terms of pi, and you are interested in the percent difference, you can drop pi from both. What is the percent change from 245 to 490?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The answer is not 50%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(percent~change = \dfrac{new~amount  old~amount}{old~amount} \times 100\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Use the formula above to find a percent change. Use 245 as the old amount and 490 as the new amount.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(percent~change = \dfrac{new~amount  old~amount}{old~amount} \times 100\) \(percent~change = \dfrac{490  245}{245} \times 100\) \(percent~change = \dfrac{245}{245} \times 100\) \(percent~change = 1 \times 100\) percent change = 100%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct. The answer is that cylinder B is 100% bigger than cylinder A.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Mindblast3r Percent change is based on the formula I wrote above. Percent comparisons are tricky. If the question were "what percent of cylinder B's volume is cylinder A?" Then the answer would be 50%. The way the question was asked, though, it requires an answer of 100%. This is why you need to read the problem carefully bec with he given info, the answer could be 50% or 100% or other numbers depending on which way the question is asked.
