Q:
# Isabella uses the equation to find the volume of the cone below.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The correct answer option is: Isabella should have divided the product of [tex]12\pi[/tex] and 9 by 3 to get [tex]V=\frac{12\pi (9)}{3}[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:We are given a diagram of a cone with height [tex] 9 cm [/tex] and area of the base (circle) [tex] 12 \pi cm^ 2 [/tex].Isabella uses the equation [tex] V = \frac { 1 } { 3 } ( 12 ) ^ 2 ( 9 ) \pi [/tex] and we are to find the error that she is making in finding the volume of this cone.The volume of a cone is given by: [tex]\pi r^2\frac{h}{3}[/tex] out of which [tex]\pi r^2[/tex] represents the area of the base (circle).Therefore, Isabella should have divided the product of [tex]12\pi[/tex] and 9 by 3 to get [tex]V=\frac{12\pi (9)}{3}[/tex].
