# Which explanation can be used to informally derive the formula for the volume of a cone? a cylinder is exactly 3 times bigger than a cone with the same height and radius. therefore, the formula for the volume of a cone is 13 of the volume of a cylinder with the same height and radius. a cone is similar to a triangular pyramid except that a cone has curved edges. therefore, the formula for the volume of a cone can be derived by using the formula of a triangular pyramid and using the radius instead of the base length. a cone is approximately the same size as 1.5 spheres. using the formula for the volume of a sphere and multiplying it by 1.5 will give the formula for the volume of a cone. a cone consists of a circle as a base and triangles for its body. the formula for the volume of a cone can be derived by adding the formula for the area of circle and the area of the number of triangles that will cover the body of a cone.

The first few steps in solving the quadratic equation 9x2 + 49x = 22 ? 5x by completing the square are shown. 9x2 + 49x = 22 ? 5x 9x2 + 54x = 22 9(x2 + 6x) = 22 which is the best step to do next to solve the equation by completing the square? 9(x2 + 6x + 3) = 25 9(x2 + 6x + 3) = 49 9(x2 + 6x + 9) = 31 9(x2 + 6x + 9) = 103
