      • B. The radius is d over 2 .

      • C. The radius is 2d.

      • D. There is not enough information to find the radius of the cone.

    • b. An ice cream cone is filled exactly level with the top of the cone. The cone has a 9-cm diameter and 9-cm depth. Approximately how much ice cream (in cm3) is in the cone? Use 3.14 for π. Round to the nearest hundredth as needed.

  • 5. A special stainless steel cone sits on top of a cable television antenna. The cost of the stainless steel is $8.00 per cubic centimeter. The cone has radius 12 cm and height 10 cm. What is the cost of the stainless steel needed to make this solid steel cone? Use 3.14 for π. Round to the nearest cent as needed.
