A mini-cone has a diameter of 2 inches at the widest point and holds 12.5 in3 of ice cream. A mega-cone holds 133.1 in3 of ice cream. What is the diameter of the mega-cone at its widest point?

• Math -

133.1/12.5 = 10.648

Assuming similarity of shape, the diameter of the larger cone is ∛10.648=2.2 times as large, or 4.4 inches.
