The volume of a cylinder is 300x(pi) cubic inches. If the height of a cone with the same base is 12 inches, what is the diameter of the cone? Can someone please explain or help how to get an answer for this?(Crying)(Angry)(Headbang)

let r be radius of the cone, h be its height

(pi)(r^2)(h) = 300pi

(r^2)(12) = 300

r^2 = 25

r = 5

hence its diameter is 10 inches
