# The Ratio Between the Radius of the Base and the Height of a Cylinder is 2 : 3. If the Volume of the Cylinder is 12936 Cm3, Then Find the Radius of the Base of the Cylinder. - Mathematics

Sum

The ratio between the radius of the base and the height of a cylinder is 2 : 3. If the volume of the cylinder is 12936 cm3, then find the radius of the base of the cylinder.

#### Solution

Let the radius of the base and the height of the cylinder be r and h, respectively

We have,

r : h = 2 : 3 i.e "r"/"h" = 2/3

or "h" = (3"r")/2        .........(i)

As,

Volume of the cylinder = 12936 cm3

=> pi"r"^2"h" = 12936

=> 22/7xx"r"^2xx(3"r")/2 = 12936     [Using (i)]

=> 33/7xx"r"^3=129336

=> "r"3 = 12936xx7/33

⇒ r= 2744

=> r = root(3)(2744)

∴ r = 14 cm

o, the radius of the base of the cylinder is 14 cm.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
