Braintenance: Sorting Sand Into Two Containers (02.08.2010)

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .

Dear Fellow Frenetic Self-Growth Enthusiasts:

The mission is to find the heights of each two containers, one which is cylindrical and one of which is conical such that each one can hold the same exact amount (volume) of sand. Each of the containers must have a floor area (which is a circular base, naturally) of three square feet.

Using some simple solid geometry and some simple algebra, this mission should be easy to accomplish. Good luck.
