# find the height

A paper cone cup beside a water cooler has a diameter of 6 centimeters and a slant length of 9 centimeters. What is the approximate height,h, of the cup?

1. make a side view sketch and you will see that
h^2 + 3^2 = 9^2
solve for h

btw, your choices are not approximate heights, they are exact heights
