Two containers designed to hold water are side by side, both in the shape of a cylinder. Container A has a radius of 13 feet and a height of 14 feet. Container B has a radius of 10 feet and a height of 18 feet. Container A is full of water and the water is pumped into Container B until Conainter B is completely full.

After the pumping is complete, what is the volume of water remaining in Container A, to the nearest tenth of a cubic foot?


  1. Answer:
    The percentage ≅ 48.4%
    Step-by-step explanation:
    The volume of water left in container A = 2197π – 1134π = 1063π feet³
    * To find the percentage of the water that is full after pumping
     is complete, divide the volume of water left in container A
     by the original volume of the container multiplied by 100
    ∴ The percentage = (1063π/2197π) × 100 = 48.3841 ≅ 48.4%
