is it possible to make a conical tent with 428 sq ft cloth with 8ft base radius and 15ft height to accommodate 6 students who need 1000 ft cubic space

Expert Answer:

Radius of the conical tent = 8 ft
 
Height of the conical tent = 15 ft
 
Volume of the conical tent
V equals 1 third pi r squared h equals 1 third cross times 22 over 7 cross times 8 squared cross times 15 equals 1 third cross times 22 over 7 cross times 64 cross times 15 equals 7040 over 7 equals 1005.7 space c u. f t
 
Since 1000 cu.ft > 1005.7 cu.ft, it is possible to make a conical tent with 428 sq ft cloth with 8ft base radius and 15ft height.
