I've tried this 3 times... help?!? A company that manufactures storage bins for grains made a drawing of a silo. The silo has a conical base, as shown below. What is the total volume of grains that can be stored in the silo? http://learn.flvs.net/webdav/assessment_images/educator_geometry_v14/pool_Geom_3641_0810_23/image0024e68b84b.jpg
