# The Radii of the Base of a Cylinder and a Cone Are in the Ratio 3 : 4. If Their Heights Are in the Ratio 2 : 3, the Ratio Between Their Volumes is - Mathematics

MCQ

The radii of the base of a cylinder and a cone are in the ratio 3 : 4. If their heights are in the ratio 2 : 3, the ratio between their volumes is

• 9 : 8

• 3 : 4

• 8 : 9

• 4 : 3

#### Solution

9 : 8
Let the radii of the base of the cylinder and cone be 3r and 4r and their heights be 2h and 3h, respectively.
Then, ratio of their volumes= (pi(3"r")^2xx(2"h"))/(1/3 pi(4"r")xx(3"h"))

=(9"r"^2xx2xx3)/(16"r"^2xx3

=9/8

= 9 : 8

Is there an error in this question or solution?
