Quandaries and Queries 

I am working on a craft project at home and I have been given the following information:
Is there a basic formula for creating a cone with this info?
Hi Tracie, The cone can be made by rolling a trapeze whose bottom side is roughly 4.71 inches and top side roughly 40.84 inches, and whose height is 17 inches. (The bottom and top side are obtained by multiplying the diameters 1.5 and 13 by , and the height is obtained by applying the pythagorean formula to find the hypothenuse of a right triangle whose dimensions are 16 and (13  1.5)/2.) In the diagram below of the cone, triangles ADB and APC are similar and hence, Hence to create the cone draw a circle of radius 19.2", cut off a sector with angle 121.8^{o} and then cut from the apex of this sector another sector of radius (19.2  17.0)".
