Volume of x(Vx) is r^2*PI*h (r-radius, h height)

Volume of y (Vy) is (2r)^2*PI*2h = 4*r^2*PI*2h=8r^2*PI*h = 8*Vx

If Vx is 2$
Vy/2=4*Vx=8$

Can someone please explain this one? thanks.


formula for vol of a cyl is PI*r^2*h

so Vy = 8*Vy

y when half filled will cost 4 times x so ans is E

Welcome to GMAT Club. Below is a complete step-by-step solution of the question.

Oil cans x and y are right circular cylinders and the height and radius of y are each twice those of x. If the oil in can x filled to capacity sells for $2, how much does the oil in y sell for if y is only half filled?
A $1
B $2
C $3
D $4
E $8

The volume of can X is \pi{r^2}h, which when filled to capacity sells for $2;
The volume of can Y is \pi{(2r)^2}(2h)=8\pi{r^2}h. Can Y is only half fill so volume of oil in it is 4\pi{r^2}h. Since \pi{r^2}h sells for $2 then 4\pi{r^2}h sells for 4*$2=8$.

Answer: E.

Hope its clear.
