Jilian wants to buy candles in case her electricity and furnace fail. Each candle she plans to use, burns at a rate of 5mL of wax per 15 min. One of these candles has a diameter of 8 centimeters and a height of 15cm. How many HOURS wil it take the candle to burn down completely?

Express the answer to the NEAREST WHOLE NUMBER. (Note: 1 mL = 1 cm cubed) (Hint: A candle is a cylinder; use 3.14 as an estimate for pi.)
