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)
