Am I correct in assuming that since you want the figures to be similar, you're not cutting the cone into three parts (which would give a single cone and two frustrums), you're creating three cones, correct?
A wooden cone is cut into 3 parts, A,B and C by 2 planes parallel to the base. The height of the 3 parts are equal.find
i. The ratio of volume of a,b,c
ii. The ratio of the base area of part a,b,c
Please show the working. Really have no clue on how to do it.
i could draw the diagram but i have no idea how to get the answs

Hi aroperalta,
You don;t need given numbers because you are looking for relative volumes.The top cone has a v1 = 1/3pi r^2h.The next cone V2 -1/3 (2r)^2*2h. The third cone V3=1/3pi (3r)^2*3h.Differences between them defines the trapezoid like volumes.When you write the difference equations you will see that Va,Vb,Vc are related by relative volume numbers
