The base of a 6-inch long ice cream cone with a diameter of 2 inches, is cut 0.25 inches from the base. The left over shape resembles a cylinder. What is the BEST estimate for this shape's volume?

• geomtry -

volume of 6" cone minus volume of 4" cone

diameter of 6" cone = 2"
diameter of 4" cone = 4/3 "

now just plug and chug
