    Question 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.
