Problem
Which of the cones listed below can be formed from a sector of a circle of radius by aligning the two straight sides?
Solution
The blue lines will be joined together to form a single blue line on the surface of the cone, hence will be the slant height of the cone.
The red line will form the circumference of the base. We can compute its length and use it to determine the radius.
The length of the red line is . This is the circumference of a circle with radius .
Therefore the correct answer is .
