At the school carnival popcorn was given out in paper cones like the one
shown(3-diameter and 5 being the height of the cone). Approximately how many cubic inches of popcorn can the cone hold?
1/3TT r^2 h
1/3 TT(1.5)^2(5)
11.78
is approximately 12 cubic inches of popcorn

    looks good to me.

    more common to use pi or π than TT, though.

    thanks for checking my work
