4. Aftermaking a frustum from it, the worker can get a smaller cone. It is similar to the large cone. Let’s the ratio of the heights and theradiuses of the cones is 1:x.

(a)(ii) Volume of large cone = πR^2H/3

Volume of small cone = π(R/x)^2(H/x)/3 = πR^2H/3x^3

Ratio = (πR^2H/3) / ( πR^2H/3x^3) = 8

(πR^2H/3) / ( πR^2H/3x^3) = 8

(πR^2H)/(3) x (3x^3)/ ( πR^2H) = 8

(3x^3)/ (3) = 8

x^3= 8

x =2

The ratio of the heights and the radiusesof the cones is 1:2.

He can make a frustum which the height ishalf of the original cone.
