An ice box has dimensions 12x24x16 inches. It is full of shaved ice for snow cones. Each paper cone cup has a radius of 1.5 inches and a height of 5 inches. Assuming the ice does not melt and that each cup is filled completely, about how many cups can be filled?

np so i took πr2h and then i did 12*24*16 and that gave me 4608 then divided by 35.34 and got 130.390 so your answer would be 130 then

Is that actually how you solve it....seems too easy lol

The  volume of the ice box  is   12 * 24 * 16  =  4608  in^3   (1)

The  volume  of each cone  is    [ pi (1.5)^2 * 5  / 3 ]     in^3    (2)

 

So.....the number of cups that can be filled is  (1)  / (2)  =

 

      4608 

    _______                      =   about 391  cups

[  pi (1.5)^2 * 5  / 3 ] 

 

 

cool cool cool
