# Largest right circular cylinder within a frustum

Given a frustum of height , top-radius & base-radius . The task is to find the volume of biggest right circular cylinder that can be inscribed within it.

**Examples:**

Input: r = 5, R = 10, h = 4Output: 314Input: r = 7, R = 11, h = 6Output: 923.16

**Approach**:

Let:

- The height of the cylinder =
**h1** - Radius of the cylinder =
**r1**

From the figure it is clear that:

- Height of the cylinder = Height of frustum
- Radius of the cylinder = Rop-radius of the frustum

So,

h1 = h r1 = r

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++
