Find the volume of an industrial tank in the form of a horizontal cylinder whose radius si 2.6 yd, and whose length is 8.4 yd Repport your answer to thenearest tenth of a cubic yard and use 3.14

For a cylinder:
V=πr²h 
V = pi * r^2 * h

"In regards to my question radius 2.6 yd
length 8.4, 3.14 I used that formula
and somewhere i went wrong ikeep coming up with the answer 68.5776 whichis none of the choices given."
Both of the responses above indicate
V=πr²h
which means that
volume = π × r × r × h
Your answer 68.5776 corresponds to
π × r × h, so it is 2.6 times smaller than the correct answer.
Please try again with the correct formula. If you have problems, please post a followup here.
