My teacher had gave me this problem and I though I knew how to do it. So far, whether it is right or not, I have the height being 143.4cm because the circumference of a circle is pi times diameter, which is in this case 6. I took pie times 6 and got 18. then I took 2582 and divided it by 18 and got 143.4 cm. I'm not sure but I'm thinking I got 2582 by multiplying 6 by 342 to the third... Could someone Please help me with this?
