# Write whether the following statements are true or false. Justify your answer. (i) If the radius of a right circular cone is halved and its height is doubled, the volume will remain unchanged. (ii) A cylinder and a right circular cone are having the same base radius and same height. The volume of the cylinder is three times the volume of the cone. (iii) In a right circular cone, height, radius and slant height are always the sides of a right triangle.

1. (i)Volume of cone = (1/3)r2h

If radius is halved and height is doubled, then volume = (1/3)(r/2)2 2h = (1/3)r2h/2

If the radius of a right circular cone is halved and its height is doubled, the volume will be halved.

So given statement is false.

(ii)Radius of cylinder = radius of cone

Height of cylinder = height of cone

Volume of cylinder = r2h

Volume of cone = (1/3)r2h

The volume of the cylinder is three times the volume of the cone.

So given statement is true.

(iii)In a right circular cone,

l2 = h2+r2

In a right circular cone, height, radius and slant height are always the sides of a right triangle.

So given statement is true.
