A cylinder has a radius of 5 in. If the volme of the cylinder is 250p in.3, what is the height of the cylinder? [Hint: The volume of a cylinder is given by V = pr2h.]

    Just insert the values into the formula and solve.

    V = (pi)r^2h

    V = 250 cubic inches (in^3)
    pi = 3.1416 (or you could round it to the nearest hundredth)
    r = 5 inches (r^2 = r times r)
    h = your unknown.

    Solve for h.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
