Since the bases of the cylinder and the cone both have diameters of s (the length of one side of the cube), each of their radii is s/2. Both also have a height of s. The formula for volume of a cylinder is V = πr^{2}h The formula for volume of a cone is V = πr^{2}h/3 If you substitute in the radius and height for both, what is the ratio of their volumes? Hope this helps, Janice
