Practice question:

1)A movie theater serves a small size of popcorn in a conical container and a large sized popcorn in a cylindrical container. Find the volume of each container. Then determine which container is better to buy.

Volume of small container: Volume of larger container:

V=1/3*3.14*r^2h V=2.14*r^2h

=1/3(3.14)(3)^2(6) =(3.14)(2.5)^2(6)

=56.2in.^2 =117.75in^2
