You solve for h

Plug in all the numbers and solve for h.

Pi is spelled as I have written it with just the two letters.

The formula for the volume of a cone with height=h and whose circular base has a radius=r is as follows

V=1/3*pi*(r^2)h

substituting the values specified gives the following

284.7=1/3*3.14*4*4*h

284.7=16.74666667*h

isolating h by dividing both sides of the equation by 16.74666667

h=284.7/16.74666667

h=17.00039809

This is extraordinarily close to 17

replace the unknows

284.7=1/3(4x4)h

284.7=1/3(16)h

284.7=5.33h

h=284.7/5.33

= 53.42
