*How do I do this problem? I am really confused and I need to figure this out tonight because I have a quiz tomorrow that will have these types of problems on it!*

Volume of ice cream = (4/3) pi (diameter of ice cream/2)^3 = (4/3)pi (5/2)^3 → (1)

Volume of cone = (1/3)pi (diameter of cone/2)^2 (height of cone) = (1/3)pi (5/2)^2 ( 12) → (2)

Percent of cone filled by ice cream = (1) / (2) =

[ (4/3)pi (5/2)^3 ] / [ (1/3)pi (5/2)^2 ( 12) ] =

4 (5/2) / 12 =

10/12 =

5/6 = .8333 = 83.33% = 83% (rounded)
