# 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.

(i)Volume of cone = (1/3)r^{2}hIf radius is halved and height is doubled, then volume = (1/3)(r/2)^{2}2h = (1/3)r^{2}h/2If 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 coneHeight of cylinder = height of coneVolume of cylinder = r^{2}hVolume of cone = (1/3)r^{2}hThe volume of the cylinder is three times the volume of the cone.So given statement is true.(iii)In a right circular cone,l^{2}= h^{2}+r^{2}In a right circular cone, height, radius and slant height are always the sides of a right triangle.So given statement is true.
