Hi;

The solution M #241 (three parts) is correct. Neat work, bobbym!

M #242. (a) The area of the base of a cylinder is 36.75 square centimeters and its height is 12 cm. Find its volume.

M #242. (b) How much earth will be excavated from a circular well 17.5 m deep and 2 m base diameter?

M #242. (c) A cylinder of maximum volume is cut out from a solid metal cuboid of length 20 cm and cross section a square side is 14 cm. Find the volume of the metal wasted.
