Question

You work as a purchasing agent at a manufacturing facility that makes right circular cones. The best price you find for the aluminum used to make the cones is $0.009 per square inch. If a cone has a radius of 1.65 inches and a height of 4.60 inches, what is the cost to produce 75 cones?

Answer #1

**Solution
:**

**Formula for surface area of a right circular cone is :
Lateral Surface area (LSA)=π x r x l**

**where, r= radius and l = slant height**

**Slant height can be calculated as : Slant height l=sqrt
h^2 + r^2**

**l=sqrt 1.65^2 + 4.6^2 = sqrt 21.16 + 2.7225 = sqrt
23.8825 = 4.89 inches**

**Therefore, SLA = 3.14 x 1.65 x 4.89 = 25.34 sq
inches**

**Base area (BA) = π r^2 = 3.14 x 1.65^2 = 8.55 sq.
inches**

**Total surface are of cone = Base Area + Lateral surface
area = 8.55 + 25.34 = 33.89 sq. inches**

**For 75 cones we will need : 75 x 33.89 = 2541.75 sq
inches of Aluminium**

**Price of Aluminium is $0.009 per sq. inch**

**Therefore cost of 2541.75 sq inches of Aluminium =
2541.75 x 0.009 = $22.86**

**ANSWER : Cost
to produce 75 cones is $ 22.86**
