volume of cone  =  (1/3)(area of base)(height)

volume of cone  =  (1/3)  (pi)(radius2) (height)

Plug in the information from the problem.

12 cm3        =  (1/3)  (pi)(radius2) (14 cm)

Multiply both sides by  3 .

36 cm3        =  (pi)(radius2) (14 cm)

Divide both sides by  14 cm.

Divide both sides by  pi  .

$$\sqrt{\frac{36}{14\pi}}\,\text{ cm}\,=\,\text{radius} \\~\\ \text{radius} \,=\,\sqrt{\frac{36}{14\pi}}\,\text{ cm} \,\approx\,\sqrt{\frac{36}{14(\frac{22}7)}}\,\text{ cm}\,=\,\sqrt{\frac{36}{44}}\,\text{ cm}\,\approx\,0.905\,\text{ cm}$$
