Asolid oblique cone with a slant length of 17 units is placed inside an empty cylinder with a congruent base of radius 8 units and a height of 15 units. what is the unfilled volume inside the cylinder? 320π cubic units 597π cubic units 640π cubic units 725π cubic units
the correct answer option is d. 5, -4.
we are given the following equation and we are to solve it using the quadratic formula:
re-arranging this equation in order of decreasing power:
using the quadratic formula:
substituting the given values in the formula to get:
m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1) | * (x2 - x1)
m * (x2 - x1) = y2 - y1 | + y1
m * (x2 - x1) + y1 = y2
answer d is correct.
the bisector splits the triangle up but not evenly, there is a 1 difference for each value.
