The height of the cylinder:- 7ft 5 in
The diameter of the cylinder:- 5ft
Formula for the right cylinder:- V =
π
First step is to find the increased amount of feed the cylinder has.
In other
words we have to find the volume of the cylinder.
The formula for
the right cylinder was already provided.
I first had to find the radius, in which the radius is
the diameter.
Therefore, r =
The diameter is 5 so the radius would be:-
r = 2.5 ft
We must change the feet into height. 7 ft 5 in would be 7.417 ft.
Therefore, the h = 7.417 ft
We are able to find the volume because enough information was provided.
V =
π
V = 145.552
The increased amount of feed that the cylinder can contain is 145.552
We have to convert that to cubic meters, then multiply that by the amount
one foot is in meters. 1 ft = 0.3048 meters, therefore:-
V = 145.552

The cubic feet will then cancel so you have to multiply the 145.552 by
0.3048 cubic meters.
V = 4.12157366
rounded o
ff
would be:-
V = 4.122m
Therefore, the maximum volume is 4.122
2. We now have to find how much feed is needed to purchase for the
