A company makes wax candles in the shape of a cylinder. Each candle has a diameter of 6 inches and a height of 6inches. How much wax will the company need to make 100 candles?
Use 3.14 for PI and do not round your answer.


  1. Answer:
    8478 of wax
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Radius is half the diameter ; r=3 inches. h= 3 inches.
    1 candle = 3.14r²h = 3.14 x 3²x 3 = 84.78cm
    100 candles =  84.78cm x 100 candles = 8478 of wax.
    hope this helps! ₍^ >ヮ<^₎
