For a cylinder:
V=πr²h

college math  Ms. Sue, Friday, June 1, 2012 at 11:09pm
V = pi * r^2 * h

You have posted:
"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.
