Answer:

The height of the cone is approximately #7"cm"#.

Explanation:

#V = 1/3 pi r^2 h#

#263.9 = 1/3 pi 6^2 h#

#263.9 = 1.047 xx 36 xx h#

#263.9 = 37.699 xx h#

#h = 263.9 ÷ 37.699#

#h = 7.0002#

With the rounding of the decimals for #pi# and the overall Volume, we can estimate that The height of the cone is #7"cm"#
