A right circular cylinder is inscribed in a cone with height h and base radius r. Find the largest possible volume of such a cylinder.

I'm just really confused on how to figure this one out. The equation for the volume of a cone is v = 1/3pi r^2h and the volume of a cylinder is v = pi r^2h. I just don't know how to use these two formuals in order to find a solution. Please help me. Thanks.
