Answer by Edwin McCravy(8893)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Something is wrong because 5 cubic centimeters of wax is not enough to make a crayon 8 cm long with 1 centimeter diameter, for it would take at least 6.3 cubic centimeters to make one without the conical tip. The conical tip would require even more wax. Read the problem again and post again, for surely the 5 cm was a typo.
