Round your solution to the nearest hundredth. (1 cubic foot holds about 7.480519 gallons)Answer by solver91311(17077)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The volume of a cone is one-third of the product of the area of the base and the height, so: Plug in your values for the radius of the base (remember, one-half of the diameter) and the height, then do the arithmetic. Multiply the result by the number of gallons per cubic foot. Remember to round off appropriately. John
