Note: The number is spelled "pi"; "pie" is something you eat.

What is the formula for the volume of a right circular cylinder. (This question assumes that you know this, so if you don't, look it up and make yourself a flashcard, so you can start memorizing it.) Plug "144pi" in for "V" and "6" in for "r". Solve for the height "h".
