Hello,
I am having difficulty solving this cone problem. The biggest challenge I have is figuring out what angle they are talking about:
The angle at the base of a cone is 34.5 degrees. Find the diameter of the cone at point on the edge of the cone 26cm from the tip.

Hi Courtney,

I think it is angle BAC in my diagram.

Write back if you need more assistance,
Penny
