Homework Help: Algebra 1

Posted by Elizabeth on Thursday, January 17, 2008 at 6:08pm.

Jillian wants to buy candles for winter, in case her electricity and furnace fail. Each candle she plans to use, burns at a rate of 5 mL of was per 15 cm. How many HOURS will it take the candle to burn down completely?
Express the answer to the NEAREST WHOLE NUMBER. (Note: 1mL = 1 cm cubed)
(Hint: A candle is a cylinder; use 3.14 as an estimate for pi.)

I have no idea how to start this. Please show me. Thanks!
