Q9:

Find the dimensions of the right circular cylinder whose radius is of a meter greater than the height and volume is cubic meters.

• Aradius = 1.67 m, height = 2 m
• Bradius = 2 m, height = 2.33 m
• Cradius = 3.33 m, height = 3 m
• Dradius = 2.33 m, height = 2 m
• Eradius = 2.67 m, height = 3 m

Q10:

Find the dimensions of the right circular cylinder whose height is one less than half its radius and volume is cubic meters.

• Aradius = 6 m, height = 4 m
• Bradius = 6 m, height = 3 m
• Cradius = 8 m, height = 3 m
• Dradius = 6 m, height = 2 m
• Eradius = 2 m, height = 6 m

Q11:

• Aradius = 7 m, height = 6 m
• Bradius = 4 m, height = 5 m
• Cradius = 5 m, height = 4 m
• Dradius = 4 m, height = 3 m
• Eradius = 3 m, height = 4 m
