Question

Sam knows the radius and height of a cylindrical can of corn. He stacks two identical cans and creates a larger cylinder. Which statement best describes the radius and height of the cylinder made of stacked cans? It has the same radius and height as a single can. It has the same radius as a single can but twice the height. It has the same height as a single can but a radius twice as large. It has a radius twice as large as a single can and twice the height.

Answer:It is B

Step-by-step explanation:Person above is big brain

Answer:

B. It has the same radius as a single can but twice the height.

Step-by-step explanation:

A. It has the same radius and height as a single can.

No

B. It has the same radius as a single can but twice the height.

Yes

C. It has the same height as a single can but a radius twice as large.

No

D. It has a radius twice as large as a single can and twice the height.

No

Since both cylinders has the same radius, when they are both stacked together (vertically), the radius coincides, thereby making the stacked cylinders maintain same radius

This means, radius of cylinder A = radius of cylinder B = radius of stacked cylinders

But, the height doubles of the two stacked cylinders double.

That is, height of cylinder A + height of cylinder B
