Truncated cone 5

The height of a cone is 7 cm, the length of a side is 10 cm, and the lower radius is 3cm. What could be the possible answer for the upper radius of a truncated cone?

Correct answer:

r1 =  10.1414 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

h=7 cm s=10 cm r2=3 cm x=s2h2=10272=51 cm7.1414 cm r = r2x <0 r1=r2+x=3+7.1414=10.1414 cm
