### What is the formula for the volume of a cone? (where V = volume, r = radius, h = height)

• A.

V = πh^3r

• B.

V = πh^2r^3

• C.

V = 3π(hr)^2

The formula for the volume of a cone is V = πr^2(h/3). This formula is derived from the formula for the volume of a cylinder, V = πr^2h, by dividing it by 3. The cone can be thought of as a pyramid with a circular base, and by dividing the volume of the cylinder by 3, we get the volume of the cone. The formula includes the radius (r) squared and the height (h) divided by 3, which accurately represents the volume of a cone.
