## anthony0223990 one year ago Gold in the form of solid cylinders will be molded into solid blocks. Each cylinder has a diameter of 6.19 cm and a height of 6 cm. Each solid block will have a volume of 360 cm3. How many cylinders of gold will it take to mold one block of gold?

First, find the volume of each cylinder. $$\large V_{cylinder}= \pi r^2 h$$

3. mathstudent55

Since you are given the diameter of the cylinder, remember to divide the diameter by 2 to find the radius to use in the formula.

Then once you know the volume of one cylinder, divide the volume of the solid block by the volume of one cylinder. Then round the quotient UP to the next higher whole number.
