#### Question

A certain number of metallic cones, each of radius 2 cm and height 3 cm are melted and recast into a solid sphere of radius 6 cm. Find the number of cones.

#### Solution

Let the number of cones be n.

Let the radius of the sphere be r_{s} =6 cm

Radius of a cone be r_{c} =2 cm

And the height of the cone be h =3 cm

A volume of sphere = n(Volume of a metallic cone)

`=> 4/3 pir_s^3 = n(1/3 pir_c^2 h)`

n = 72

Hence, the number of cones is 72.
