A cylindrical popcorn tin has a diameter of 12 in. and a height of 15 in. What is the volume of popcorn it can hold?

\(1696 in ^{3}\)

Explanation

The volume of a \(\text { cylinder }=\pi \times(\text { radius })^{2} \times \text { height }\). The radius of the popcorn tin is 12/2 = 6 in. The height of the tin = 15 in. So its \(\pi \times(6)^{2} \times 15=1696 i n^{3}\)
