Problem
An ice-cream novelty item consists of a cup in the shape of a 4-inch-tall frustum of a right circular cone, with a 2-inch-diameter base at the bottom and a 4-inch-diameter base at the top, packed solid with ice cream, together with a solid cone of ice cream of height 4 inches, whose base, at the bottom, is the top base of the frustum. What is the total volume of the ice cream, in cubic inches?
Solution 1
The top cone has radius 2 and height 4 so it has volume .
The frustum is made up by taking away a small cone of radius 1, height 4 from a large cone of radius 2, height 8, so it has volume .
Adding, we get .
