#### Question

The radius and height of a right circular cone are in the ratio 5 : 12 and its volume is 2512 cubic cm. Find the slant height and radius of the cone. (Use it 𝜋 = 3.14).

#### Solution

Let the ratio be x

Radius ‘r’ = 5x
Height ‘h’ = 12x

∴ Slant height l =sqrt(r^2+h^2)=sqrt((5x)^2+(12x)^2)=13x

Now volume = 2512cm^3

⇒ 1/3xxpixx(5x)^2xx12x=2512

⇒ 1/3xx3.14xx25x^2xx12x=2512

⇒ x^3=(2512xx3)/(314xx25xx2)

⇒ x=2

∴ Slant height = 13x=13xx2=26cm

And, Radius of cone =5x=5xx2=10cm

Is there an error in this question or solution?
