a cylindrical oil drum is 6 feet long and has a radius of 2.5 feet?
A-to the nearest cubic foot,what is the volume of this drum?

• geometry -

The formula to use is

V = pi r^2 L

Using pi = 3.14 will be accurate enough in this case.

L is the length and r is the radius..
Round off your calculated answer as they have requested.
