[Math Revolution GMAT math practice question]

A piece of cardboard measures 30 cm by 40 cm. We can make two different right circular cylinders by rolling the cardboard along its length and by rolling the cardboard along its width. What is the difference in their volumes?

$$A. \frac{1000}{π}$$
$$B. \frac{2000}{π}$$
$$C. \frac{3000}{π}$$
$$D. \frac{4000}{π}$$
$$E. \frac{5000}{π}$$

Circumference of circle so formed = 2πr=30.....r=15/π Height =40 $$V=π*\frac{15}{π}^2*40$$ For the other volume 30 and 40 will interchange So $$V=π*\frac{20}{π}^2*30$$.... Difference = $$\frac{20^2*30-15^2*40}{π}=(12000-9000)/π=3000/π$$ C _________________ 1) Absolute modulus : http://gmatclub.com/forum/absolute-modulus-a-better-understanding-210849.html#p1622372 2)Combination of similar and dissimilar things : http://gmatclub.com/forum/topic215915.html 3) effects of arithmetic operations : https://gmatclub.com/forum/effects-of-arithmetic-operations-on-fractions-269413.html GMAT online Tutor Math Revolution GMAT Instructor Joined: 16 Aug 2015 Posts: 6639 GMAT 1: 760 Q51 V42 GPA: 3.82 Re: A piece of cardboard measures 30 cm by 40 cm.
