Find The Ratio Of Their Heights

If the volumes of two cones are in the ratio 1 : 4 and their diameter are in the ratio 4 : 5, then the ratio of their height is ( take p 22/7)

  1. 25 : 64
  2. 5 : 4
  3. 1 : 5
  4. 5 : 16

Answer: (1) 25 : 64
Explanation:-
The ratio of volume of two cones = 1 : 4
The ratio of diameter of cones = 4 : 5
The ratio of radius of two cones = 2 :  5/2
Formula-
The volume of the cone = pai x r2 h/3
Then, pai x (2)2 h/3 : pai x (5/2)2 h1 /3 = 1 : 4
h/h1 = 1 x25/4 x 4 x 4
h/h1 = 25/64
h : h1 = 25 : 64
Hence, the ratio of heights is 25 : 64.
