Claudia is making a candle by pouring melted wax into a mold in the shape of a cylinder. The radius of the cylinder’s base is 4 cm, and the height of the cylinder is 9 cm. To get the wax for the candle, Claudia melts cubes of wax that are each 3 cm by 3 cm by 3 cm. How many of the wax cubes will Claudia need to purchase to make the candle? (Note that Claudia is not able to purchase partial cubes). Show all your work.

The formula of a cylinder is 2πr (r+h)

2π4 (4+9)

8π (13)

25.13 (13)


Cubes: area = a^3

3x3x3 = 27

326.73 / 27 = 12.1

Claudia would need to buy 13 wax cubes to fil the candle.

hope this helps k12 students :)
