Choose:
 27 54 72 96

 10. A plane slices a right circular cone parallel to its base at the midpoint of its height. The radius of the cone is 4 in. and its height is 12 in. If the cone is separated at the cross section, the bottom portion of the cone is called a frustum. Which of the following statements are true regarding this diagram? (Check all that apply, and hit SUBMIT!) The volume of the cone is 192π cubic inches. The volume of the frustum is 56π cubic inches. The area of the cross section is 4π square inches. The height of the frustum is 8 inches.
