    Ice Cream Cone, radius....

    An ice cream cone has a radius of 5cm and a height of 12cm. A scoop ( a semi sphere) has a radius of 4cm. How many scoops are required to fill the same cone completetly, if the ice cream is soft enough to lose its shape once it goes inside the cone? show work

    Thank you
