Two containers designed to hold water are side by side, both in the shape of a cylinder. Container A has a diameter of 20 feet and a height of 16 feet. Container B has a diameter of 18 feet and a height of 18 feet. Container A is full of water and the water is pumped into Container B until Conainter B is completely full.

After the pumping is complete, what is the volume of water remaining in Container A, to the nearest tenth of a cubic foot?

A will hold     pi (10)^2 *16  =  1600 pi  ft^3 of water when full


B will hold    pi (9)^2 * 18  =  1458 pi  ft^3  of water when full


A will hold   [  1600  - 1458 ]  pi   ft^3 of water after filling B   =  441.6 ft^3
