Hi, can anyone help me with this problem.

The radius of a rectangular cone is "r", and height "h", by what value "x" must "r" be increased and "h" be decreased to keep an identical volume?

Thanks.

Luke.

i think U do like this:

V

V

put them equal

div out the 1/3 & 2pi

rh=(r+x)(h-x)

rh=rh+xh-rx-x^2

solve for x
