1/16, 1/3 phi r^2 h = 1/3 phi R^2 H . so 3*3*4/2 = x/y 6*6*8 so x/y = 1/16

Volume of 1 st cylinder/volume of 2nd cylinder

3.14*3*3*4/3.14*6*6*8=1/16

Yeah too simple.
I got the voulme ratio correct on this but forgot to mutiply it by half.

1/16 is correct

Never pounce on the question. Treat every question with same respect. There might be a bait waiting for you.
