# A Solid Metallic Sphere of Radius 5.6 Cm is Melted and Solid Cones Each of Radius 2.8 Cm and Height 3.2 Cm Are Made. Find the Number of Such Cones Formed. - Mathematics

A solid metallic sphere of radius 5.6 cm is melted and solid cones each of radius 2.8 cm and height 3.2 cm are made. Find the number of such cones formed.

#### Solution

Let the number of such cones formed be n
Now, Volume of solid metallic sphere = Volume of n solid cones

$\Rightarrow \frac{4}{3} \times \frac{22}{7} \times \left( 5 . 6 \right)^3 = n \times \frac{1}{3} \times \frac{22}{7} \times \left( 2 . 8 \right)^2 \times 3 . 2$

$\Rightarrow 4 \times \left( 5 . 6 \right)^3 = n \times \left( 2 . 8 \right)^2 \times 3 . 2$

$\Rightarrow n = 28$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
