Hi

MY question is if a cylinder has a volume of 72cm cubed and a cross-sectional area of 18cm squared. Work out the height of the cylinder

Can someone show me how we do it by the steps

The volume of a cylinder is given by

volume = (cross-sectional area) x height

so height = volume/(cross-sectional area)

does this help?
