# Algebra help watch

1. (Original post by Mr M)
Back to the start before you made the mistake of thinking the cylinder was closed?

Edit: Do you think it is closed at one end and open at the other? The question is a bit ambiguous or have you paraphrased?
hey, i posted a pic of my working and I got to the point robbie got to

now I am asked to show that V= pi/2 (192r-r^3)

any ideas?:P
for the next part I am asked to show that V= pi/2 (192r-r^3)

any ideas?
Find the volume for an open ended cylinder in terms h and r, but you have h so it will purely just be r's an pi's. I can't quite recall the formula, my c2 differentiation is my weakest area (mins, max peace of cake but real life applications I'm terrible at)

Also have you followed Mr M's instruction, my algebra was just to show you an example of how to manipulate an equation algebraically

the formula for the volume is the same with any cylinder, it is pir^h but I cannot get it in the form the are looking

Volume of a cylinder= Your H may be wrong perhaps

Try it yourself and you will see you still have R on both sides of your equation.
I am stuck at this part..

7. hhelp with this would be great, thanks
I am stuck at this part..
So it turns out you were right then, the cylinder was open at one end!

This is like a guessing game!

That does simplify to the expression you require.

I am unsure of how to get it into that form, i have tried relentlessly to get it, but i cant

my basic maths is awful :L thanks for your help, really really appreciated!

-> (cancel ->(split fractions) For fraction one simply divide by two so then for the second one use the rule
and that should get you this equation simplified and treat a as r, I don't want to give you the entire answer

Ok right at outset you were told to cancel on the top and bottom of your expression for h. That might help you.

the second = r/2 then?
the second = r/2 then?
precisely, do not forget the minus from ,earlier though

but sure this cannot be used in showing that that expression equals the area as we do not have 192 in it?

GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks robbie dude

No problem!
