# Thread: IVT word problem involving volumes.

1. ## Unresolved.IVT word problem involving volumes.

I have tried to look at this problem from many different perspectives but I think I got stuck:

Use the Intermediate-Value theorem to show that there is a right circular cylinder of height h and radius less than r whose volume is equal to that of a right circular cone of height h and radius r.

I greatly apreaciate any support.

Is there any way I can relate the two volume formulas with the intermediate value theorem.
