### Example Question #1 : How To Find The Volume Of A Cone In Pre Algebra

What is the volume of a cone with a height of meters and a base diameter of meters?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The formula for the volume of a cone is .

Notice that we are given the diameter, meters, not the radius; thus, we have to solve for the radius by dividing the diameter by two. The radius is therefore 3 meters. Then, we plug this value into the formula for volume:
