A candle manufacturer sells cylindrical candles in sets of three. Each candle in the set is a different size. The smallest candle has a radius of 0.5 inches and a height of 3 inches. The other two candles are scaled versions of the smallest, with scale factors of 2 and 3. How much wax is needed to create one set of candles?
