1. Answer: 141 cubic inches

Step-by-step explanation:

Hi, to answer this question, since the candle is a cylinder, we have to apply the next formula:

Volume of a cylinder (V) : π x radius ² x height

Replacing with the values given and solving for v (Volume)

V =   π x 3 ² x 5

V =  141 cubic inches

In conclusion, the volume of the candle is 141 cubic millimeters, and it is also  the amount of wax needed for the candle.

2. Answer:

141 in³

Step-by-step explanation:

This problem bothers on the mensuration of solid shapes a cylinder, since the shapes of candles are cylindrical.

Given data

Radius r= 3in

Height h= 5in

Volume of cylinder V= πr²h

Substituting our given data we have

V= 3.14*3²*5

V= 3.14*9*5

V= 141.3in³

V= 141in³
