Q: a cone shaped paper drinking cup holds 10 cubic cm of water. We would like to find the height and radius that will require the least amount of paper.

Volume of a cone is: (b x h)/3, or with radius is: ((pi r squared x h))/3.

I think you solve this problem by finding a ratio and getting h in terms of r. Any ideas? Thank you!
