Ratio of volumes

If the heights of two cylindrical drums are in the ratio 7:8 and their base radii are in the ratio 4:3. What is the ratio of their volumes?

Correct answer:

p =  14:9

Step-by-step explanation:

p1=78=0.875 p2=431.3333  p1=h1:h2 p2=r1:r2  V1=πr12 h1 V2=πr22 h2  V1=π (p2 r2)2 (p1 h2) V1=π p22 r22 p1 h2=p22 p1 V2  p=V1/V2  p=p22 p1=1.33332 0.875=149=1591.5556=14:9
