A cone of maximum volume 2015-03-16
From Mary:
I have to use a 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch piece of paper to make a cone that will hold the maximum amount of ice cream possible by only filling it to the top of the cone. I am then supposed to write a function for the volume of my cone and use my graphing calculator to determine the radius and height of the circle. I am so confused, and other than being able to cut the paper into the circle, I do not know where to start. Thank you for your help! -Mary

The retail price for an ice cream scoop 2009-07-05
From Patricia:
Hi - I am trying to figure out the fairest retail price for an ice cream scoop. We have an ice cream parlor and the cost of the ice cream we buy by the bulk container has recently been increased so now we must charge more for our scoops. We pay a wholesale price of $25.40 for 242 ounces of ice cream. The cost per ounce is $0.105. What is the formula for figuring out how much to charge retail per scoop? This is probably so simple but confusing to me. Please help. Thank you!

A large, hollow, ice cream cone 2009-04-03
From Darah:
A manufacturer is making a large, hollow, ice cream cone to serve as an ad for a local Baskin-Robbins. The ice cream cone is made up of a cone with height 8 feet, topped by a hemi-sphere with radius 6 feet. How much ice cream could the hollow object hold? If a gallon is 0.13368 cubic feet, how many gallons does it hold? If 3 gallons of Baskin-Robbins heavy cream chocolate blend weighs 24 pounds, how much would the ice cream cone weigh, excluding the weight of the construction material?
