Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Snowy's Snow Cones has a special bubble gum snow cone on sale. The cone is a regular snow cone that has a spherical piece of bubble gum nested at the bottom of the cone. The radius of the snow cone is 2 inches, and the height of the cone is 3 inches. If the diameter of the bubble gum is 0.5 inches, which of the following can be used to calculate the volume of the cone that can be filled with flavored ice?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so first we need the formula for the sphere's volume, know what that is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, I guess you can start out with finding the volume of the cone.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What's the volume of a cone formula? And the volume of a sphere is: \[4/3pir^3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. So plug in the values you have for height and radius. The radius of the sphere is half the diameter, so it would be 0.25.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Unofficialllyy you can already rule out the last two answers, since they have 0.5, the diameter, rather than the radius of the sphere.
