Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Or another way to say that is "the volume of the cylinder is 3 times the volume of the cone."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Do you understand? Of course the radii and heights must be the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but I am still confused how to figure out the volume of the cylinder so the cone can fit in it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question only gives me the volume of the cone, do I just multiply that number by 3? So 6 * 3 = 18?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so 18 is the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes. The idea is that if you have a cylinder and cone of equal radii and height, then 3 of the cones will fit in the cylinder.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Betty closes the nozzle of the funnel and fills it completely with a liquid. She then opens the nozzle. If the liquid drips at the rate of 14 cubic inches per minute, how long will it take for all the liquid in the funnel to pass through the nozzle? (Use π = 3.14.) (1 point) 4.71 minutes 3.14 minutes 14.13 minutes 9.42 minutes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We're talking about a cone here so just calculate the volume of the cone in cubic inches.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Divide that answer by 14 and that will be the number of minutes.
