My problem was not sure which equation can be use in this question....please help ! Thx. First thing to do is draw a labled diagram of a cone in the sphere. Now write the volume of the cone in terms of what you know and any free variables that you had to introduce when you labled the diagram. CB

Let r be the radius of cone. height of cone= (see diagram) Volume of cone calculate I got cm Put this value of h in equation to get an answer. Hope this helps
Answer is 79.43cm^3 V^^ Thanks.
