 Question 120309: A cone shaped pile of sand contains 5.4m^3. If the pile of sand covers 8.1m^2, how high is the pile of sand. ( uyse formula v=(1/3)(area of base) (height) to find the volume of a cube. Thank you.Answer by jim_thompson5910(28598)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If the sand covers 8.1m^2, this means the area of the base is So the volume Start with the given formula Plug in the given volume and the area Multiply Divide both sides by 2.7 to isolate h Divide So our answer is which means the height is 2 meters
