**drwls**, Friday, January 14, 2011 at 12:47amThe cone base radius is 176 cm.

Based upon similar right triangles,

112/64 = H/176

One of the triangles has the side of the tent for the hypotenuse, the radius for one side and the tent height for the other side. For the second triangle, the girl standing up is the vertical side, and the 64 cm length is the base. All angles are the same.

H = 308 cm
