Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is the volume of the cone . We just have to substitute the numbers here !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Volume of a cone = (1/3) pi r^2 h where r = radius and h = height so plug in the given values 62.8 = (1/3) * 3.14 * r^2 * 15 solve for r

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since they have asked us the radius in inches no need to convert the height and the radius in to meters.
