**Solution:**

If two cones with same base and height are joined together along their bases, then the shape so formed is look like as figure shown.

**Question 74.**

**From a solid cube of side 7 cm, a conical cavity of height 7 cm and radius 3 cm is hollowed out. Find the volume of the remaining solid. [NCERT Exemplar]**

**Solution:**

Given that, side of a solid cube (a) = 1 cm

Height of conical cavity i.e., cone, h = 7 cm

Since, the height of conical cavity and the side of cube is equal that means the conical cavity fit vertically in the cube.

Radius of conical cavity i. e., cone, r = 3 cm

⇒ Diameter = 2 x r = 2 x 3 = 6 cm

Since, the diameter is less than the side of a cube that means the base of a conical cavity is not fit inhorizontal face of cube.

Now, volume of cube = (side)³ = a³ = (7)³ = 34³ cm³

and volume of conical cavity i.e., cone

**Question 75.**

**Two solid cones A and B are placed in a cylindrical tube as shown in the figure. The ratio of their capacitites are 2 : 1. Find the heights and capacities of the cones. Also, find the volume of the remaining portion of the cylinder. [NCERT Exemplar]**

**Solution:**

**Question 76.**

**An icecream cone full of icecream having radius 5 cm and height 10 cm as shown’in the figure. Calculate the volume of icecream, provided that its 1/6 parts is left unfilled with icecream.**
